Mansa musa travel to america

Mansa muse birth

Bata Manding Bory, which was the real name of our emperor, succeeded to the throne his brother, Mohammed ibn Gao, who had left the Mali Empire at the height of its power, and therefore allowed his brother to devote himself to the contemplative and cultural life. The good Bata comes to the throne and changes his name to Abubakari II. His kingdom enjoys peace and prosperity, and he hears about the theories that the world is shaped like a pumpkin, and that beyond the ocean to the west there are new lands.

When Musa I in 1324 went to Mecca on pilgrimage, as a good Muslim, he met the Arab scholar Al-Umari, to whom he related the particular way in which he had attained power. It was this scholar who first put in writing the story of the Mandingo expedition to America.

But the definitive proof for some of the arrival of Africans to the distant lands of the West is in a tomb discovered in Hull Bay in the Virgin Islands. In this tomb archaeologists found the skeletons of two individuals with Negroid bone characteristics, which were dated by Carbon 14 to 1250, i.e. even before the alleged Abubakari expedition.

Where did his gold come from, perhaps the Americas? It is the case that Musa followed on the throne Mansa Abubakari II, who supposedly disappeared trying to explore the Atlantic Ocean. Is it a true story or just mythology?

Well, Puigserver and Garcia have rescued the work of the Egyptian scholar Al-Umari, dated 1342, that is, three decades after the alleged transatlantic voyage of Abubakari II. The Egyptian met in Cairo with the son of Emir Hajib, Abu Hassan Ali, who had personally met Mansa Musa, successor of the protagonist of this story.

It seems then that the daring expedition across the Atlantic Ocean took place. In 1312, Abubakari II set sail for the unknown and left his trusted lieutenant, Kanku Musa, in charge of the administration of his empire. Neither the emperor nor his ships were ever seen.

Beyond this flimsy argument, Van Sertima can argue the presence of Mandinka traders in the Mexican area. In fact, he assures that the Pochtecas themselves came from Mali and that the god Ek Chuah was of Mandinka inspiration.

Musa was called and is generally cited as such in Western manuscripts and literature as Mansa Musa. His name also appears as Kankou Musa, Kankan Musa or Kanku Musa, meaning “Musa, son of Kankou”, Kankou being his mother’s name. Other alternatives are Mali-koy Kankan Musa, Gonga Musa and the Lion of Mali.[6][7][8][8][8][9][9

What is known about the kings of the Mali Empire comes from the writings of Arab scholars, such as Al-Umari, Abu-sa’id Uthman ad-Dukkali, Ibn Khaldun and Ibn Battuta, among others. According to Ibn-Khaldun’s extensive history of the kings of Mali, Mansa Musa’s grandfather was the vizier known as Manding Bory or Abu-Bakr (the Arabic equivalent of Bakari or Bogari, the original name unknown and not coinciding with the Sahaba Abu Bakr), brother of Sundiata Keita, founder of the Mali Empire as recorded in oral tradition. Abu-Bakr did not ascend the throne, and his son, Musa’s father, Faga Laye, had no relevance in the history of Mali.[10] The name of Abu-Bakr is not known.
