Welcome to American Ifa!
American Ifa is the place where you can feel comfortable learning, working and understanding Orisa and Ifa (African Spirituality) as expressed in different systems, particularly, Traditional West African and Lukumi (Cuban-Diaspora). American Ifa lives by the premises of FREEDOM, PRIDE and UNITY. We implore you to feel FREE to venerate and practice your way of life that instills PRIDE not only for Ifa and Orisha but for the place in which you live. In American Ifa you are FREE to venerate and practice with your Ifa and Orishas that you have received from different systems without ridicule from the other. American Ifa is the place that fosters the environment that allows us the FREEDOM to learn about different cultures and the ways in which we live the Ifa and Orisa experience. American Ifa allows us to connect to our extended families of Ifa/Orisa people WORLDWIDE and the opportunity to foster UNITY among ourselves. SO CHEERS TO OUR ANCESTORS WHO BROUGHT US TO IFA AND ORISA WHO IN THEIR OWN WAY KEPT IFA AND ORISA ALIVE IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS AND IN SO DOING WE WERE ABLE TO SPREAD IFA AND ORISA AROUND THE WORLD!
