[Yoruba] The World of the Yoruba
"Yoruba is the second largest language group in Africa, consisting of over 20 million people. The term 'Yoruba' encompasses about twenty-five separate groups, each one culturally different from the next. Islam, Christianity, and the 'traditional' Yoruba pantheon, the orisa, are all embraced in Yorubaland. The bond shared by all Yoruba peoples is the centrality of ritual to special occasions, as well as to everyday life."
