Orishas(An Introduction to African Spirituality and Yoruba Religion)
The belief system of the Yoruba people, which may have originated millions of years ago in Nigeria, is regarded as one of the oldest religions in the world. It has since gained followers from all over the world, from the Caribbean to North America, and it's easy to see why. Its oral interpretations have piqued the interest of many, ranging from majestic tales of the Orishas to life-changing teachings of reincarnation. And, while it has been modified or intertwined with other world religions everywhere else, this high form of spirituality is still practiced in its original form in Africa.
