Hebrew West African Royalty And Warrior Queen Amina
Queen Amina (also known as Queen Aminatu), was the elder daughter of Queen Bakwa Turunku, the founder of the Zazzau Kingdom in 1536.
Some scholars date Queen Amina’s reign to about 1549, as heir apparent after the death of her mother. This medieval African kingdom was located in the region now known as the Kaduna State in the north-central region of Nigeria, capital at the modern city of Zaria.
Zaria (aka Birnin Zaria) was named after Queen Amina’s younger sister Zariya, and is where the Royal Palace of Zaria resided.
The earliest commentator to mention Queen Amina is Muhammed Bello’s history Ifaq al-Maysur, composed around 1836. Queen Amina is also mentioned in the Kano Chronicle, a well-regarded and detailed history of the city of Kano and the surrounding Hausa people.
It was composed in the late 19th century and incorporated earlier oral histories before the Fulani jihad of 1804-1810. It included king-lists of the various Hausa kingdoms.
Known as a great military strategist, the cavalry-trained Queen Amina fought many wars that expanded this southern-most Hausa kingdom. According to the Sankore Institute of Islamic – African Studies International, a non-profit, non-political educational institution, reporting on this region of the Hausa:
These seven regions witnessed many unusual and strange events. The first to establish government among them, as it has been claimed, was Amina, the daughter of the Amir of Zakzak. She made military assaults upon these lands until she proclaimed herself over them by force.
The lands of Katsina and Kano were forced to hand over levy to her. She also made incursions into the lands of Bauchi until she reached the Atlantic Ocean to the south and west. She died in a place called Attaagar. It was for this reason that the kingdom of Zakzak was the most extensive among the kingdoms of Hausa, since Bauchi included many regions.
Queen Nzinga (1583-1663) was a 17th-century queen of the Ndongo and Matamba Kingdoms of the Mbundu people in what is known as Angola today. Born into the ruling family of Ndongo, Nzinga demonstrated an aptitude for defusing political crises in her capacity as ambassador to the Portuguese, and later assumed power over the kingdoms after the death of her brother. She ruled during a period of rapid growth in the African slave trade. Her reign lasted 37 years.
Nzinga fought for the freedom and stature of her kingdoms against the Portuguese, who were concentrating their efforts towards South West Africa, in attempts to control the slave trade.
Today, she is remembered in Angola for her intelligence, her political and diplomatic wisdom, as well as her brilliant military tactics. A major street in Luanda is named after her, and in 2002 a statue of her in Largo do Kinaxixi, Luanda, Angola was dedicated by then-President Santos to celebrate the 27th anniversary of independence.

*In the continental United States of America, there were Africans who came before slavery, before Columbus, and thousands of years before Jesus Christ.

African Queens Who Fought Slave Traders
This fierce all-female army was so ruthless that European colonists called them the Amazons after the merciless warriors of Greek mythology.
The Dahomey Amazons were frontline soldiers in the army of the Kingdom of Dahomey, a West African empire that existed from 1625 to 1894. Its remnants lie in modern-day Benin, which occupies a sliver of the coast between Nigeria and Togo.

Hebrew Yahdaim Women Prophets in the Torah
The label “prophetess” or “woman prophet” (něbī’āh) is attributed to five women in the Old Testament:
“Miriam” (Exod. 15:20),
“Deborah” (Judg. 4:4),
“Huldah” (2 Kings 22:14; 2 Chron. 34:22),
“NoadYah” (Neh. 6:14), and “the prophetess” (Isa. 8:3). Its significance is clear. Miriam claims Yah “has spoken” through her (Num. 12:2).
Deborah says to Barak: “Look, Yah, the Abba of Yahdaim, has commanded” (Judg. 4:6).
Huldah similarly uses the prophetic introductory formula:
“Thus says Yah of Yahdaim” (2 Kings 22:15). Scripture, then, describes a woman prophet as someone through whom Yah speaks to his people. In this regard, a “prophetess” is no different than her male counterpart, the “prophet” (nābī’).
Miriam, a prophetess who led Yahdaim with her brothers Mosheh and Aaron (Micah 6:4)
Spiritual authority is a difficult concept to define comprehensively; however, it is closely linked with hearing from Yah and being sent by Yah for service.
Samson’s Mother (Judges chapter 13)
In Judges chapter 13, there is a narrative where the Malak (Angel) of Yah reveals Yah’s plan for Yahdaim’s deliverance to an unnamed woman. This unnamed woman was married to man named Manoah, and yet the Malak entrusted Yah’s plans and instructions to the woman.
The Malak (angel) told the woman that she would bear a special son, and her son would deliver Yahdaim from the Philistines. The Malak gave the woman instructions about her diet and he told her never to cut her son’s hair.
The woman told her husband about her encounter. Manoah, the husband, wanted to hear the instructions for himself, so he asked Yah to send the man of Yah again. He wanted to know how to bring up the child (Judg. 13:8). Yah answered his prayer but, again, the Malak appeared to the woman.
The woman ran to get her husband. When Manoah met the Malak, the Malak repeated what he had said previously to the woman:
“Your wife must do all that I have told her.” She must not eat. She must do everything I have told her.” (13:13-14)
Yah fully trusted the woman to obey and follow these instructions without her husband’s permission or help.
The woman recognised from the beginning that the messenger
“looked like a Malak of Yah, very awesome” (Judg. 13:6).
Manoah, on the other hand, did not realise that the messenger was an Malak until he offered a burnt sacrifice and the Malak of Yah ascended in the flames and disappeared (Judg. 13:17).
Terrified, he said to his wife…
“We are doomed to die, we have seen Yah.”
The woman prudently replied, “If Yah had meant to kill us he would not have accepted the burnt offering.”
Throughout this narrative, the woman shows herself to be very wise, discerning and sensible.
Deborah (Judges chapters 4-5)
Deborah who was the leader of Yahdaim at some point in their history. Judges chapters 4 and 5 records Deborah’s leadership and does not mention that there was anything peculiar about her being both a leader and a woman.
In fact, her gender does not seem to have been an issue at all. Deborah was married, but the Torah mentions nothing at all about her husband, apart from his name: Lappidoth (Judg. 4:4).
In Judges chapter 5 we read that prior to Deborah’s leadership: “village life in Yahdaim had ceased” (Judg. 5:7), “the roads were abandoned” (Judg. 5:6) and the Yahdaim had chosen false Elohim (gods) (Judg. 5:8).
The clear implication is that Yahdaim society became more civilized, safer and more Yah-fearing because of Deborah’s leadership.
Deborah was an excellent and versatile leader. She was a prophetess (Judg. 4:4, 14), a judge (Judg. 4:5) and a military leader (Judg. 4:6-10).
Deborah’s prophetic insight was accurate and she showed decisive leadership in military matters.
Complementarians have unfairly speculated that Deborah became a leader because there were no men capable of the task. However, the Scriptures are clear that Yahdaim was not without male leaders at that time.
Judges chapter 5 mentions leaders (Judg. 5:2-3), nobles (Judg. 5:13), princes (Judg. 5:2, 9, 15) and warriors. Moreover, it is evident that Deborah encouraged other leaders in Yahdaim, and that these leaders had great confidence in her leadership.
Deborah, a judge of Yahdaim, summoned Barak
(Judges 4:1-11, 5:1-18).
Deborah was a prophetess, a speaker of wisdom, but when war came she led the out-numbered and badly-equipped Yahdaim’s troops to a great victory. It was a Dawid and Goliath situation. She chose the most able military general and told him what he must do.
The mother of Sisera (Judges 5:28-30).
Sisera’s mother and her attendants waited for her son to return. But as the reader knows, he was already dead by Jaal’s hand.
Jaal met Sisera and killed him
(Judges 4:17-24, 5:24-27.).
Another woman, Jaal, used a tent peg and mallet to kill the unwary enemy general, Sisera. She called Sisera into her tent, hid him and fed him. After he fell into exhausted sleep she drove a tent peg through the side of his head.
She was hailed as a national heroine by the pursuing Yahdaim forces led by Deborah and Barak.
Deborah in the Torah:
“Never Say Die!”
Deborah is ‘bee’ in Hebrew. It also means ‘spirited or fiery woman’. Deborah could sting like a bee. Barak means ‘lightning’ – perhaps an ironic pun on Barak’s reluctance to go to battle, and the terrible storm that Yah sent to help him.
Sisera is not a Semitic name. He may have been one of the Sea Peoples, skilled in military matters and feared wherever they went. Jaal means ‘wild gazelle’ or ‘wild goat’.
The battle, then Sisera fled
(Judges 4:12-16, 5: 19-23).
Deborah tricked the over-confident enemy into driving their iron-wheeled chariots onto marshy land where they were bogged down. Then Yahdaim slings men and archers picked them off one by one.
The enemy forces were routed, their troops slaughtered, and the Yahdaim were jubilant. Sisera, the enemy general, fled from the battlefield towards the encampment of Jaal the Kenite
Jaal met Sisera and killed him;
(Judges 4:17-24, 5:24-27.).
