...Selassielive is right. It has been mostly Rastafari who have repatriated to Shashamane however the land grant was a gift to Africans abroad:
Shashamane Land Grant
On the request of Black church leaders and organizations in the USA, the Emperor sent his personal Emissary Dr. Malaku E. Bayen to organize the support of Africans in the Americas. This was done officially under the banner of Ethiopian World Federation Inc. (E.W.F), registered in New York, USA. Exactly 7 years after the Liberation of Ethiopia and the return of the Emperor in 1941, the triumphant Emperor Haile Selassie I, bestowed a gift to the Black peoples of the West of 500 acres of land in Shashamane, Shoa Province.
