More on Ras Tafari and the African Israelites
I know that this doesn’t have a lot to do with cannabis, however Rastafari continually gets linked to cannabis throughout the generations, even though he has never been known to use cannabis.
Emperor Halie Selassie I of Ethiopia is an heir of Solomon and known by some to be G-d in the flesh.
According to tradition, Haile Selassie was the 225th in an unbroken line of Ethiopian monarchs of the Solomonic Dynasty
Haile Selassie was born Tafari Makonnen. He would later become Ras Tafari Makonnen; “Ras” translates literally to “head” and is the equivalent of “duke“, though it is often rendered in translation as “prince”. In 1928, he was elevated to Negus, “King”.
I believe that there are strong connections to Israel and to the Lord within this culture and this history of this culture.
That is why I linked the information about the so-called “lost tribe of Israel” or the “Lemba”. They have direct roots to Israel. They also carry a unique haplotype in their Y chromosome called the Cohen Modal Haplotype (CMH) and that links them to the priestly tribe that they claimed to descend from in Israel nearly 2000 years ago.
For a brief look in, I compiled some videos and music. Credit to NOVA, the BBC, and anyone else who’s materials were used in this video.
Now excuse this for not being about cannabis. It’s true, we’re a little different here. These views do not represent all members of this blog. This is just something put together by reverend Ryan to demonstrate the true meaning of Rastafari. Im not an expert, just an astute enquirer of this subject.
Thanks for taking time to read this and to watch the youtube video!
BTW- Vote YES on Proposition 19!
