Orixás for children

In the olden days there was a strong relationship between the West Coast of Africa and the country on the other side of the ocean: Brasil. People travelled from one place to the other side of the ocean. Architecture travelled from Brasil to West Africa and the remnants of it can be seen in the old coastal cities.

Waldete TristãoReligion also travelled across the ocean. The writer Waldete Tristão has investigated these religious connections and has written books for children on different deities. In this article you will find more information on this intruiging subject.
