Powers of the Orishas by Migene Gonzalez-Wippler
* Discover the Orishas of Santeria and Yoruba culture, learning the attributes, paths, and other important association for each Sacred Orisha, including the saintly name under which it might also be known. In order to continue their magical and religious observances safely, the slaves opted for the identification and disguise of the Orishas with some of the Catholic Saints worshipped by the Spaniards. In this manner, they were able to worship their deities under the very noses of the Spaniards without danger of punishment. The book has been divided into sections, each dealing with a specific Orisha, the attributes, paths or aspects, necklaces, initiations, foods, herbs, legends, and other pertinent information about the particular deity. Paperback, 126 pages.
