Abstract

African-indigenous spiritual practices, ancestral wisdom, and knowledge that pre-dates the institution of colleges and universities can be seen in multiple perspectives. For instance, this knowledge has been revered, or rejected. In this thesis, I advocate for the importance of understanding these spiritual practices and knowledges and regarding them as a form of healing, pedagogy, and rebellion. Finally, I discuss my curation of exhibits and altars that allow people to access the healing and restorative power of ancestral wisdom.
