If you are a practitioner of the lucumí faith (Aborisa, Aleyo, Olorisa, Iyawo), then please reblog this so we can all get to know each other :-)

In my first post about the Lukumi Iyawo Year I received some comments and questions that made me realize that another post was in order.  Hopefully, this will bring more clarity and correct some assumptions.

The first thing that cannot be stated enough about the Lukumi Iyawo Year is that the practice originates among the Yoruba people (and possibly their neighbors) in the countries that we now refer to as Nigeria and Benin.  Dressing in white for an entire year and adhering to strict protocols after initiation is not something that was invented in Cuba.  There has been some debate about this, as most Ifa and Orisa practitioners who have traveled to Nigeria don’t find most Yoruba adhering to this protocol so the assumption was made that this practice is “invento.”  Not necessarily.
