Remember any form of African indegionous religion that still exists would be very much a shadow of it's former self. Africa has had it's culture and land raped twice by Christians and then Muslims. And it's very much a crime in some parts of Africa to practice the folk religions.

We'd like to bring a Kemetic revival to Egypt or at least get some house members there, but the government won't allow it. There are some people there who would want to. They may even would accept that Rev. Tamara Siuda is the Nisut of their people.

I would really like to know more about Kemetic religion.
Do goddesses play an important part in it (Isis)?

Yes, Aset (Isis) plays a big role in the Kemetic religion, as does all other names of Netjer (gods). If you want to know more about it.

I myself am a son of Sekhmet-Mut, and so I'm devoted to her

There are many unbroken African religious traditions all over, although especially in central Africa. African countries were exploited, but African traditional religion certainly didn't go into a decline or undergo huge modifications like was seen in the African diaspora and the development of traditions like Haitian Vodou, Obeah, etc.

It is also worth noting that African religion began to mix with Christianity before the slave trade and not only in the diaspora, but also in Africa itself. African kingdoms (example, in Benin) had begun to adopt and practice Christianity alongside African traditional religion, merging the two freely, before it became a necessity in the diaspora. So in a sense there are Christian practices that are very African in content and origin, with Jesus and the Saints already being associated with African spirituality in the continent.

when they have not converted to Islam or Christianity?
I have as good as no information about native African religions and would seriously like to know more.
As an African person myself I wish I could tell you but I don't know. Everything from my experience of African religion/spirituality has involved the Abrahamic religions.

Have you looked through Wiki to see different African religions?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serer_religion
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odinani

Or looked at Voodoo and Vodou, Candomblé, and similar Afro-Americas religions?
