RP from @dedukeosy - Let me Educate you a little.

It is no secret that everything comes from Africa.
Even what you call Twerking is an African Dance called "MAPOUKA" #Mapouka wecycled from @godkingguyanese You'd better be learning at least 1 thing new everyday on social media. If you're not, you're following the wrong pages!!! 🙌🏾

The movements involved in twerking show similarities to several traditional West African dances, most notably mapouka, hailing from the Cote d’Ivoire. Known colloquially as “la dance du fessier,” or “dance of the behind,” mapouka is said to exist in two forms: A tamer, more traditional dance performed ceremonially, and the newer, more scandalous version popular with young Ivoirians. #mapouka #westafrica #dance

Left cheek, right cheek lol This traditional dance originated south east of the Ivory Coast in Dabou. From its inception, Manpouka was usually carried out when some religious or other grand ceremony was being conducted. It eventually spread to the west and Sub-Saharan countries. Black women around the world are often shun for this type of dance but there is no reason to be ashamed💃🏽 Many people don't realize how connected they are to the homeland even if they've never been. Many African Americans are attracted to certain music (base/loud drums) dances, styles, etc. b/c of our genetics. The same goes for other "races". It's important to know more about the continent your people came from and the cultural significance of things we include in our daily lives. We should know what our culture was before we were brought to a country that was hell bent on controlling or destroying all the others. Most of us know American history like the backs of our hands but what about African history?🤔

Ancient #mapouka from Ivory Coast 🇨🇮 ...🛇 twerking .... #Fela on the beat🇳🇬

#pressplay 🎥 Se pa Twerk 👀 se Mapouka

Le mapouka, aussi connu sous le nom de macouka, est une danse traditionnelle de Côte d'Ivoire, originaire des alentours de Dabou.

Cette danse, par sa chorégraphieosée, pourrait faire croire qu'il s'agit de danse érotique. Dans les années 1980, des artistes ivoiriens ont tenté sans grand succès de la faire connaître. Un des groupes les plus connus est Les Tueuses de Mapouka.

En 1998, le Conseil national de la communication audiovisuelle (CNCA) décide d'interdire sa diffusion. C'est à la suite de cette interdiction que la danse connaît une propagation très rapide dans les pays sub-sahariens, en Europe et notamment en France où il y a beaucoup d'expatriés Ivoiriens || #mapouka #dance #africa #culture #ivory #female #wow #HighMind #pimpnewstv #support #international #like #share #comment 👇👇👇

Mind blowing😂😂 The moment you learn that!! twerking🍑🍑 is actually A dance!!!!. Oh my goodness😱 #mapouka

@Regrann from @jamaicanmevegan - The actual term “#Twerking ” comes from #NewOrleans’ early 90s bounce scene. It was a #party dance, not unlike the cat daddy or the dougie, where men and women would wind and thrust their hips to the bells and chimes of the beat. Modern day twerking is very similar to Mapouka, a dance from Côte d’Ivoire. The dance has existed for centuries and consists of a series of movements emphasizing the #buttocks. #Mapouka requires great skill and isolation of muscles. From its origin, Mapouka was a celebratory dance for #festivals by #Africans and was widely accepted because people believed that this dance led to encounters with God. Research shows that Mapouka has been used as a way to decide mates for #young #men and #women as well. - #regrann

If this looks fun, healing, encouraging, and liberating...you're absolutely right!

We started with #Tarot 🔮 and ended with Twerk👌! I was sore for 3 days because Breezy don't play, and I loved every bit of it.
I can't eeeeven begin to explain how physically, emotionally, and #spiritually *releasing* it was...I'm waiting and still practicing for next time! According to my "Siddha" as she calls it: "We just opened up a big ass ROOT CHAKRA in heeah!" - Breezy.
