Narmer Amenuti

My name is Narmer Amenuti (Dances With Lions). I am an Educationalist, an Investigative Historian and a Culture Critic from the Sankoré School (of Critical Theory). I am East African by birth; South African by training; West African by choice - all of which make me, African by nature. I am also a student of Ancient African Rhythms and a passionate dilettante of Science. ~ Success Corrupts; Usefulness Exalts! ~ Narmer!
