The indigenous Yoruba spiritual tradition is a major African religion. The religion revolves around the appeasement of spiritual forces called orisa, considered intermediaries of God. Explore the dynamic character and energy of nine of the most popular orisa in the Yoruba pantheon. These include Obatala, Eshu, Oshun, Orunmila, Shango, Ogun, Yemoja, Obaluaye and Osanyin.

• Historical and mythological stories.
