The Name

The name ‘Camara’ comes from the Bantu dialect of West Africa and means ‘teacher’ or ‘one who teaches with experience’. Many people read it as ‘Camera’ and pronounce it as such, however the correct pronunciation is ‘Ca ma ra’.


The ANANSE NTONTAN (“spider’s web”) symbol come from the adinkra symbols found in Ghana and historically used by the Asante tribe on cloth, walls and in pottery.
