Fèt /fet/ - A Kwéyòl word meaning a party, celebration, or festival.
Egun /ā-goon/ - a West African term for the spirits of our ancestor(s), whether related to us by blood or religious lineage.
Fèt Egun is a multicultural gathering meant to return our displaced ancestors to their former honor and glory, as well as bring forth the energy of those who were royalty or lived in luxury. We respect and have immense gratitude for those who did what they could with what they had in times of despair. It is our intention to elevate all who came before us, and who continue to remind us that we deserve the highest and finest rewards this earthly realm has to offer.
We encourage all attendees to dress up in your cultural wear, adorn yourselves like the Kings and Queens of our bloodlines, and honor them by remembering where we come from and where we aim to return. As above, so below. We believe that the more we give back in gratitude and the spirit of opulence, the wider the pathways will open for us to receive that same bounty. The time is now to restore our glory, and it begins with a return to nobility and royalty.
May we always remember the sacrifices made on our behalf, the titles and honor stripped from our people, and the lineage and customs that have built the wealthiest nations this world has ever witnessed.
No matter the relationship we have with the person who gave birth to us, we all have a long lineage of women who have paved the way for the lives we live today. Let’s bring our energies together to elevate our mothers, aunts, sisters, grandmothers, warriors, and queens to say “thank you!”
What to bring: YOU, a picture and/or story of a female ancestor, a white candle (tea light is sufficient). If you will not have a candle, please let us know via the registration form, and we will accomodate you.
