For his new book, N__ez collected the ancient stories told in SanterÌ_a, a widely practiced religion resulting from the syncretism of Western African YorÌ_bÌÁ religion and Catholicism. These stories speak about the actions and conflicts of the divine ancestors of the YorÌ_bÌÁ slaves of Nigeria and have been retold for centuries by native-born Africans and their Cuban-born descendants during their sacred and secular dances, carnivals, and festivals throughout the Spanish and Portuguese colonies.
