Santeria (Way of the Saints) is an Afro-Caribbean religion based on Yoruba beliefs and traditions, with some Roman Catholic elements added. The religion is also known as La Regla Lucumi and the Rule of Osha.
It's a very personal very memoirist writing of Marta Moreno Vega's spiritual journey which is appreciated to her an own voice review of the religion . She also gives Patakís- legends and stories of the Orishas at the start of each chapter flowing well in what the chapter is about.
Marta Moreno Vega is the founder of the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute. She led El Museo del Barrio, is one of the founders of the Association of Hispanic Arts, and founded the Network of Centers of Color and the Roundtable of Institutions of Colors.
