The Anu (pronounced Ah-nu or Oh-nu) were the first inhabitants of Khemt. As prehistoric migrants of Ta'Nehisi (Nubia), the Anu followed the flow of the Nile River, moving northward toward what is now the Mediterranean Sea, where they established the city An.

The term Anu has been thought to mean "Men", stemming from the root word An, which means "Man" in the Afu-Ra-Kan language Diola.[1] According to Scholars, "the Anu agricultural people, raising cattle on a large scale along the Nile..."[2]. As a diaspora of the Original Nile Valley Civilization, They brought with them the sciences, arts, calender, writing system and cosmogony to Their new establishment An, later hellenized "Heliopolis".[3] "To this people we can attribute, without fear of error, the most ancient Egyptian books, The Book of the Dead and the Texts of the Pyramids, consequently, all the myths or religious teachings...and philosophical systems then known and still called Egyptian".[4]

Reality vs. Falsification

In adhering to the protocols of removing the origins of Khemt and its People from Afu-Ra-Ka, so-called "historians" have tried to place the origin of the Anu in Mesopotamia and other arab lands, even though archaeological proof has shown that arabs--along with every other race--did not exist before the Great Migration. However, in Light of further, more concrete evidence, this hypothesis has been proven to be nothing more than open speculation, and that the Anu were undoubtedly Afu-Ra-Kanu/Afu-Rait-Kaitnut. Evidences of Their origin is found throughout Their artwork, writings and spiritual practices. "Certainly the people already knew the principle arts...especially the tomb of Osiris...objects have been found bearing the unmistakable stamp of their origin--such as carved ivory, or the little head of a Nubian girl found in a tomb near that of Osiris.."[5]. In addition to being clearly uWasaran (Osirian) practitioners, the Anu also exhibited piety for the Supreme Netjer Ra. Both Netjeru uWasar and Ra are given homage in The Book of the Dead, also known as "The Papyrus of Ani"--Ani obviously stemming from Anu. In chapter XV, when One has displayed "Self-mastery...being in control of one's emotions and...temper", they are equated to Asar Ani, One who "...declares emphatically that he has gained control over his heart..."[6]. The later Khemtnu stated that Their "..people originated at the base of the mountain of the Moon, at the origin of the Nile River (Hapi)", referring to the waters at the base of Kilimanjaro, now connecting Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. "Now the Ethiopians...were the first of all men and the proofs of this statement...are manifest...Many other things are told by them concerning their own antiquity and the colony which they sent out that became the Egyptians..."[7]. This colony was the Anu.
