What is Santeria?
The Afro-Cuban religion, also called Santeria or the Rule of Osha-Ifá, arises in Cuba as a result of slavery. The conquest of the Spanish brought with it that other cultures were oppressed.
People brought from Africa who were enslaved did not uproot themselves from their faith, on the contrary, they clung to their creeds and religions with all their might.
Thanks to their bravery, cunning and rebellion to this day their customs live among us.
We Cubans have Congolese and carabalí blood, our African ancestors live in our mixture.
To them we owe respect for the religion and customs that they inherited from us.
