Celebrating Deity Azunsun and Ganlodo Flag Day

This weekend Dedagbe 26-28 6261 (January 8-10, 2021 Gregorian calendar) we celebrate the deity (goddess or female deity in this case) Azunsun and the 6258 (2017 Gregorian year) creation and adoption of the official flag of Ganlodo. Azunsun is about the respect and ecology of the earth as well as war for the right cause. She is not benevolent in her obtaining such respect for the earth.

Many African Vodún terms are included and explained. For the first time we have an intelligible, easy to study and read Fon-E...

African Vodun: Second Solstice and Sakpátá Celebrations

It is customary at Ganlodo Kilombonu Xotome that we celebrate the winter solstice and the great deity Axolu Sakpátá simultaneously. Sakpátá is the great father responsible for cleansing and administering justice for the new cycle heralded by the second solstice or winter solstice.
