“Everytime Afrikan people say the names of the Months and days of the week we participate in evoking the Indo-European-Saxon gods (Rekhety Wimby-Jones, 2002).” Hence, the “so-what” or importance of knowing and saying the Kemetic names of the abed (months) and heru (days) is to speak in the language of our Afrikan ancestors acknowledging their significant contribution to the establishment of the division of time in modern society. It was the Kemites who divided time into 24 hours, 365 heru, 12 abed, 30 heru/abed, 12 abed/1 renpet (year).
Heru (Heh-roo), represented by the Mdw Ntr (Medu Netcher) sun sign means “Day.”
