The Igbo Egyptian religion was based on the Igbo Cosmology. The Egyptian afterlife worldview had its roots in Igbo traditional concept. Nsibiri was used on decorative pottery that dates back to 4000 BCE. Thousands of Nsibiri characters were used in sacred text and a more decorative version of over 500 characters used on pottery [Dayrell 1910, 1911, Talbot 1912, Jeffreys 1964, Thompson 1974, 1978, 1983]. In 1904, T. D. Maxwell noticed the symbols carved on pottery and used in body art. Although Western scholars alleged that, during the trans-Atlantic slave trade, Nsibiri was transported to Cuba and Haiti through Igbo slaves, where the Anaforuana and Veve symbols were developed from Nsibiri [Amaechi 1977, Kalu 1980, Kubik 1986, Campbell 1988, Battestini 1991,
Roschenthaler 1993, Battestini 2002, Carlson 2003], this assertion is not correct.
The Anaforuana (Igbo language: a nafụrụ ana, meaning ‘they took away our land’) was the name given to the written language of the indigenous Igbos of the Americas, who were disenfranchised of their lands by the invading Europeans. The indigenous Igbo people expressed their anger in different symbols unreadable to their oppressors, some of these symbols were called veve (Igbo language: i we iwe, meaning ‘to be angry’). Although, much has been said by Western scholars about the Anaforuana writing being of African origin brought by slaves to Cuba, it is outright falsehood, since most of the writings pre-date the slave trade era.
The writings have been indigenous in Cuba for the Black African Cubans, who were the original indigenous people of the Island of Cuba and most of the Americas. The slave trade was not just for economic reasons, but a massive cover-up operation to hide the facts that the black Igbos of the Americas are the actual indigenous people of the Americas!
The slave trade targeted Igbo land in Nigeria, for the specific reason of hiding this fact, and hence commencing the history of blacks of the Americas with the slave trade rather than acknowledging them as the indigenous people of America. These black indigenous people were killed in massive massacres and dispossessed of their lands and the Cuban Igbos took on the name Anaforuana (Igbo language: a nafụrụ ana, meaning ‘they took away our land’) to show their protest. th is was done through the Anaforuana Igbo object form writing
The Anaforuana (Igbo language: a nafụrụ ana, meaning ‘they took away our land’) is an Igbo pictographic writing sharing the same language and religion of the Igbos from everywhere else, with Igbo object names used as phonemic clues in the subject expression on theme of conflict resolution in prayers to God by entering into a covenant. This confirms that Anaforuana (Igbo language: a nafụrụ ana, meaning ‘they took away our land’) is the same as other forms of Nsibiri by ancient Igbos from the time of the ancient Egyptian Igbos to the present-day Igbo land. The need felt by some Western
scholars to obscure the Igbo origins of the indigenous blacks of the Americas as the true owners of the land, has confused the search for the truth and obstructed intellectual discourse on the topic.
