Ptah council awards TEAM
I, Yashmal Amen – Chairman and Founder of the PTAH Council, have always been passionate and driven to uplift, support and reward those who are committed to our community, and to those who have contributed to bring about positive change to help shape and improve our society, for the benefit of humanity.
Many who have passed and those who are still present in Africa and the diaspora have been overlooked and have consequently been unrewarded for the excellent work they do. It is for this reason that PTAH Council was formed: to establish and have in place a system that recognises, honours and awards individuals and organisations which are committed to enhancing and improving our world for the benefit of us all.
As we are now in the golden age PTAH Council are establishing the Global Initiative which will bring together individuals and communities and help establish trust amongst ourselves to build powerful sustainable systems for many generations to come.
Knowing that we are of one ancestral lineage and that we have ruled the world for many dynasties and kept the balance and oneness with nature our history can be traced throughout the circumference of the globe therefore we should aim to reconnect with our heritage and inherit our rightful place once again as it was intended and preserve and be proud of the best of our culture.
PTAH Council’s goal is to bring truth, justice, harmony, balance, order, reciprocity, and prosperity, where it is most needed. And it is our duty, as we are called to stand 10,000 feet high, to have the perfect view and use Ma’at as our template. We will never be forgotten like our great Ancestors.
Our obligation is to invest in the young people and create opportunities for this generation and the generations to come and to impart the knowledge we have so they may be even greater than us. Their success is our victory. Opportunities must be for all without discrimination.
Khemra Ankh Amun
Greetings family my name is Khemra Ankh Amun and I am the creative director of PTAH Council.
When I came through the star gate (my mother’s womb) and made my first appearance, once that great light hit my eyes I knew there was much work to be done and I was the being who was going to make a difference using the tool of creativity.
The stories of my ancestors were speaking to me in sound colour, vibration, patterns, light, energy, shape and form. It is my destiny to continue with this spiritual language of codes and vibrations. My sceptre is my creativity and I will use it to remind the Gods and Goddesses of their own GREATNESS.

PTAH council Global Initiative International Committee
International Liaison officer
Nkem Anagor is a true representative of the African People of whom she is a part- particularly of African woman-
in that, she has many gifts and talents. Included amongst her many numbered gifts and roles, she is inventor of therapeutic aids for children; mother; physiotherapist; poet; champion public speaker; sometime philosopher, now graduating to African Deep Thinker- in this, she is reclaiming with her Kindred, the tradition that goes back to DWHTY/Jehuti of The [African] Nile Valley Civilizations- also later known as Thoth/ Hermes Trigemestus, by the Greeks and as Mercury, by the Romans (the idea of whom in the current age has degenerated into simply the worship of “Quick ‘n’ Easy”, but who was worshipped by Ancient Europeans as a God of wisdom, knowledge and Inner Master- standing). In every respect, she is an Artist/ Creator- as is befitting of One whose bloodline is of the Divine bloodline- the Original bloodline, of The Race of created Beings, Hueman. Created by the One Creator: The First Ancestor, whose very unlimited Greatness is to Create Greatness in the signature likeness of The Original: perfect, wise, in-Genuis, without copy nor paste; without clone, without genetic modification- Original Being, not a derivative. Therefore, by virtue of these very Truths, a Representative of The Nation People who are both eternal Inheritors and Stewards of this Earth. Amen.
[Refs: Luca Cavalli- Sforza ‘The history. and geography of human genes’; Jacob Curruthers- ‘Intellectual Warfare’ and ‘MDW NTR’; George GM James- Stolen Legacy]
Nkem Anagor has formal (certificated) learning to the level of Bachelor Science Degree. She qualified as a Physiotherapist in London in 1992 and practised as a top specialist for over 25 years, working in the field of childhood rehabilitation from early brain damage. Whilst the entrenched racism of contemporary British society still does not allow for recognition of her achievements in her field of specialism, her repeated remarkable track history in teaching children functional life skills speaks for itself- requiring no validation from others uncomfortable with the truth. [To further research Nkem Anagor’s contribution to physiotherapy, please find her information on LinkedIn].
Her real education began once her formal learning ran its course and she continues ceaselessly to apply herself to acquiring Self-knowledge into the present time.
She accepts her gifts and her life in full gratitude to the Ones whose blood signature flow within her veins and upon whose shoulders she stands. All her work is made possible by that same geni-within-us and is carried out as an expression of gratitude to the One Almighty Creator, who is (for her), Life and Truth and the Eternally (Righteous) Way.
It is with profound honour and pleasure that she has accepted this opportunity to serve Justice, Truth and Righteousness through her role as International Liaison Officer for PTAH Council International Committee.
SisDr Sandra Richards PhD
Caribbean liaison officer
SisDr Sandra Richards is an African-centred scholar practitioner and holds a Masters degree in Education and a PhD from Brunel University for her research in the area of education inclusion. Her work is rooted in the principles of MA’AT and interested in equity. Her book ‘The Way We See It’ teases out uncomfortable historical links between school exclusion and British education policy; in it she calls for “difficult conversations” which requires moving beyond the discomfort of white supremacy to address the gap between the theory and practice of social inclusion.
In addition SisDr is also the author of ‘The Journey’ a self-development workbook which offers practical solutions for healing and growing. It encompasses strategies for education achievement, parenting and rites of passage through life’s ages and stages.
Sandra is respectfully addressed as SisDr as she seeks to hold on to an African sensibility and connection with a global African village and accept her status as researcher. Much of her recent work in service to the community has been linked to empowerment conferences in the UK, Caribbean and the States where participants are actively engaged in the business of self-knowing and self-healing. She has been the featured speaker for 7 years at the annual UK Day of the Goddess event of workshops, speakers, talks, dance and entertainment where women meet together to work together, laugh together, cry together and heal together.
SisDr Sandra Richards left the UK in 2008 to join The University of The West Indies. Prior to this Sandra lectured in social policy and was a community activist promoting inclusive education especially for marginalised African Diaspora communities with heritage rooted in the Caribbean.
SisDr is particularly passionate about education and social justice demonstrated through her student-centredness, outreach and activism. SisDr bravely seeks to rupture Eurocentric and Asiatic norms by daring to position personhood as a new-normal informed by African Ancestral sensibilities fused with Eastern and Western assigned methodologies. In so-doing SisDr makes visible the trauma inflicted by conflicted ways of being. Drawing on a combination of coaching, culturally-sensitive counseling, stillness and movement her approach introduces unconventional methodologies to recalibrate our spiritual centre and undertake a purposeful life journey.
