What is Empaako?

“A fixed and closed list of twelve literally meaningless in their own contextual language but functionally rich-magical words of endearment, intimacy or respect, depending on the type of human relationship and at what moment or form of interaction and of which origin is culturally a mystery, shared and transmitted from generation to generation by millions of people across several African communities and territories of the legendary Bunyoro-Kitara Empire, Empaako is a globally unique naming system and now a UNESCO-Inscribed Representative Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity which can be harnessed to build mass solidarity and cooperation for greater Social-Economic progress”
