Ancient Egyptian Language Tour of the                                                                       Saturday January 8, 2018 at 12 Noon
Metropolitan Museum of Art
For too long, we have been referring to ourselves and our cultural manifestations through
the words of those who conquered us.  It is time to reclaim our contribution to humanity,
especially our language.  Our ancestors referred to the language as the Medu Neter, “Words
of the Divine”.  Today it is referred to by the misnomer, Hieroglyphics.  We can no longer
continue to identify ourselves by the words of the conqueror.  Our words have power and
that power can only be tapped into if we use the right frequency.  

The purpose of this tour is to:
  •  Learn the history and origin of our language
  •  Identify the Greek/ Roman misnomers and learn the original terms used
     by our ancestors
  •  Discuss the royal lineage and the titles used for our rulers
  •  Translate the common texts used on various monuments
  •  Provide a general orientation for future study of the language

Your tour will run approximately 2 hours and will cost $30 for adults and $20 for
students.  Please RSVP as soon as possible as limited spaces are available.  Pay via
cash, money order, or credit online and on site.  Please meet in the museum main
lobby near the gift shop on the right hand side at least 15 minutes prior!
