When preparing a healthy and delicious meal,  a cook needs fresh ingredients and the wisdom to know how to combine those ingredients with care and loving energy for just the right balance and desired taste.


The Kuumba Family Institute and The Kuumba Family Organizing Committee strive to do the same when it comes to inviting exhibitors and presenters to participate in what has become the best place to be the first weekend in October.

Mutual respect and a desire for cultural awareness, unity, and cooperative economics are the underlying motivation for choosing authentic goods and services and information by Aboriginal Indigenous/Africans in the Diaspora to present to the greater community.

The list below just a sampling of the exhibitors/vendors who have supported themselves and the Annual International Locks Conference by faithfully participating and offering high-quality goods and services:
