The mission of the Inland Area Kwanzaa Group is to inform the people about the Holiday, KWANZAA; promote its celebration during the holiday period (26 December – 1 January); and urge the practice of The Seven Principles (Nguzo Saba) of KWANZAA in everyday life. The core principles are Umoja (Unity), Kujichaguilia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), Ujamaa (family, Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith).The vision and values of KWANZAA revolve around the practice of fundamental activities which celebrate and reinforce family, community, and culture.
Anyone who has a serious interest in promoting the study and practice of African and African-American culture can join the group.
Members will ultimately be able to teach the practice of KWANZAA’s Seven Principles; volunteer in speakers’ bureau; and share in the rescue and reconstruction of African and African-American history and culture which is necessary to bring about liberation and a higher level of human life.
