This is Part I of a two part pancocojams series on the saying "Wakanda Forever" or the use of the word "Wakanda" with or without the "Wakanda Forever" gesture (salute).

Part I presents a compilation of examples of the "Wakanda Forever" saying or the use of the word "Wakanda" (with or without the "Wakanda Forever" salute) from discussion threads for various YouTube videos that aren't related to the "Black Panther" movie or Black Panther dance challenges.

Part II also explores the meaning/s of the "Wakanda Forever" saying or the use of the word "Wakanda" in comments, tags, or screen names really mean (with or without the "Wakanda Forever" gesture/salute.)

A video clip of three Black Panther actors/actresses explaining and demonstrating the Wakanda forever salute is featured in Part II of this pancocojams series.

Pancocojams Editor's Note
I've come across many more online examples of comments that only consists of the words "Wakanda Forever" or the word "Wakanda" with or without the "Wakanda Forever" gesture from discussion threads that aren't directly connected with the 2018 Black Panther movie or the dance challenges that sprung up in honor of that movie. However, I didn't begin to document all of those examples until fairly recently.

These examples are given in no particular order. Numbers are assigned to these examples for referencing purposes only.

Note that the discussion thread comments that are given as Source #1 are the only ones that aren't from YouTube discussion threads. The original commenter for that discussion thread references Canada.

"We are the most culturally diverse city on the planet and I saw people doing the Black Panther / Wakanda greeting in downtown Toronto yesterday. Saw it at a mall and at a restaurant.

I think it's awesome!!!!!"

"Man, people are so down on this for coming from a comic book movie or being trendy or being nerdy or being lame or whatever, but the film has already become a legit cultural phenomenon and this is practically people celebrating this shared moment of positivity with a gesture that is kind of cool. Let people have their fun."

..." I do think the Wakandan greeting can gain traction since it's a simple enough gesture, from an extremely popular movie, to actually catch on with people. We did it a few times yesterday with the group from work I went with, and it didn't feel corny, so...

This is only a few examples of “Wakanda Forever” in this discussion thread. A couple of people wrote that IsiXhosa was the African language that was used in the Black Panther movie which may at least in part account for these comments. For example,
Jonathan, 2019
"Remember the language spoken in Wakanda? This is it--isiXhosa."
