The Orisha Pantheon: Bad-ass Ancient Gods in Modern World

BY AMA MCKINLEY
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

Ama McKinley grew up in a Southern Baptist household but after a trip to Africa, to Mozambique, she came back with a strong interest in her African roots and African divinity. "...And then I found a group of gods and goddesses that looked like me..." Ama became an initiate, "... a Padawan..." of the Orisha and she joins PechaKucha Night Atlanta to tell us a bit more about the religion and her experience, personally.
