If you would like to see some other articles from Missionalia , have a look at the list of Missionalia articles on the Web THE DYNAMICS OF INDIGENOUS CHARISMATIC MISSIONARY ENTERPRISES IN WEST AFRICA Matthews A. Ojo ABSTRACT Indigenous missionary organisations resulting from the Charismatic Renewal in West Africa have proliferated since the 1970s. Through their dramatic growth and missionary vigour they contribute to shifting Christianity's centre of gravity to the non-Western world. Members of these transcultural and transnational movements are mainly the educate elite, and they are strong on college and university campuses. The article discusses the important charismatic missionary organisations in West Africa one by one, pointing out how they succeeded in crossing national frontiers to become international movements. A closing section identifies the key characteristics of these missions and gives a brief evaluation. INTRODUCTION The International Consultation on Missions held in Jos, Nigeria in August 1985 on the theme, "Mobilising indigenous missions for the harvest," was the first ever West African regional missions conference. Sponsored by the Nigeria Evangelical Mission Association (NEMA), the consultation drew participants from Ghana, Cameroon, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Guatemala, England, and USA. The conference reviewed the progress made by indig enous missionary initiatives, sought ways to stimulate and co-ordinate emerging indigenous missionary efforts, and lastly explored the means and patterns of co-operation between Western and Third World missions agencies (Gbade 1988:1-4).

Extractions: Sixty-four-year-old Baybie Hoover and her closest friend, Ginger Brown, both born blind, pitched their way from Wichita, Kansas, to New York City by singing religious music on the street with tin cups in hand. The film is a loving portrait of Baybies warm, wise, ever-enduring spirit. Mistreated by her stepmother, made pregnant by her uncle, forcibly separated from her child, and sterilized by the state, Baybie has faced trials that would have broken the spirits of other less-determined characters. As an intimate portrait of a woman who has refused to be a victim of life, this film celebrates the human spirit without artificial sentiment. Suggested Classroom Activity: Have students write a portrait of someone in their community whom they have previously overlooked; discuss together how taking a close look at someone can change ones perspective.

Extractions: African American jazz is an international music in its ability to encompass elements of other traditions. Blood Drum Spirit is an effort to adapt the deep structures of Asian, African, and Native American traditions into the African American sound, a life force creating a space for the gods to descend, a positive alternative for what we see as a corrupt and parasitic status quo on plantation earth. Over the past centuries there have been political and cultural struggles which have impacted the world's peoples, and our music is a non-verbal manifesto for cultural and political self-determination, in opposition to the enslaving uses of armies, technologies, exploitive economics and 'religion', by the so called 'developed countries'. This album crystallizes my work over two decades in world music. I have researched, performed, and recorded with master artists from China, Philippines, India, Indonesia, the Caribbean, West Africa, African America, Ireland, and Native America; most importantly, I have lived these musical traditions and through their wisdom, come a little closer to what lies behind the music.

After pioneering research in Africa and work as a development advisor, he returned to Manchester as a teacher of social anthropology. Subsequently he spent periods in North America and the Caribbean, before returning to Cambridge for fifteen years. He is currently trying to establish himself as a writer in Paris. What follows is neither social science nor autobiography, but a personal account of being-in-the-world in which he tries to move, without discordance, along the whole length of the continuum linking the self to the rest of humanity. The star of the show, however, is Manchester, where his story begins. A bottle of Manchester United Chardonnay In his book The Emigrants the story of the pop cult city . Anyone can see today that Manchester is enjoying a boom as Britain's second city in the new information services economy, even if the heyday of the Hacienda, Ecstasy and Oasis is now gone.

African Art and Architecture I. Introduction African Art and Architecture , works of art and architecture created on the African continent south of the Sahara. The immense Sahara acts as a natural barrier, separating African cultures to the north from those to the south. Although there has always been some intermingling of peoples on the two sides of the Sahara, differences in history and culture are pronounced. This article primarily discusses the art created south of the Sahara, a region known as sub-Saharan Africa. For information on the art of northern Africa, see Islamic Art and Architecture; Egyptian Art and Architecture; and Coptic Art and Architecture. The history of African art and architecture spans a vast period, beginning as early as 25,500

Religion is often seen in these researches from possivist social anthropological perspective only. This research projects seeks to investigate the meaning of disability from the perspective an indigenous mythic world of which religion is a key partner is both symbol formation and interpretation. This approach is used because of the hunch that until and unless disability is understood from the indigenous mythic world perspective, many of the well intended programmes rehabilitation and advocacy may not incorporate the essence and challenges of disability from an African perspective. The study was conducted among the Frafra located in the North East of the Upper East Region of Ghana.

Extractions: Royal hartigan Blood drum spirit Innova.mu I began my life hearing my uncle Ray Hart and my mother Hazel Hartigan tap dancing. Ray danced with Bill Robinson, Peg Leg Bates, the Step Brothers, the Nicholas Brothers, and the Hines Brothers. I started tapping at 3 years of age and felt the whole world through the sound of my taps on wood floors and bakelite mats. At 8 years I started playing piano and drums, listening to Errol Garner, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk, and Oscar Peterson. I joined a drum corps at age 11, and shortly after added drumset to my studies. Since those early years drumming, dance, and piano have been a way to understand and express life and things beyond music. I have studied drumset with Clifford Adams, Lenny McBrowne, Clifford Jarvis, Max Roach, and Edward Blackwell. Since the early 1970s I have felt rhythms and time in many patterns: three or four layers at once, playing on different sides of the beat, and time cycles of 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 , 15, 17, 23, and so on, beats. Also, groups of uneven beats, with some longer than others. For me it is important to play these approaches in a way which is natural and not mathematical, so that the sound swings in whatever idiom I am playing: bebop, funk, blues, gospel, reggae, hip-hop, or Afro-Latin styles. My musical home is the African American tradition with a focus on jazz, so my drumset work centers on extending rhythm and time concepts without a repeating beat, flowing over any time cycle in the same way Elvin Jones or Jack DeJohnette make time flow.
