Lukumi Links

Being a recent returning priestess to the religion of Lukumi (that’s a whole story in itself) I’ve been researching the religion, mainly via posts dug up from my godfather Afolabi, who passed on- and others who I used to be connected to. The purpose is mainly to keep track of all this information so I can build my religious knowledge (now that I’m old enough to grasp it all) and to educate friends/the public/anyone who is interested. I’d rather them hear it from reputable sources and not sites that claim we are beaten by our elders with sticks. 🙂
