Greetings to everyone. It was our intent to introduce our first annual 9-day ߞߎ߫ߟߌߕߐ߫ Kúlítɔ (ancestor) festival which would have started today. However, due to Covid 19 we are not able to have a full festival. However, we will be doing proper ritual and prayer. Normally, there would be an annual parading of the agan (masquerade) from various families. Each family would have an agan representing certain ancestors. The consecrated agan embodies the spirit of the ancestor and they are honored yearly through singing their praises and parading.

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. Since she is about just war she represents the holy war in our traditions. One can learn more about many of the authentic deities of African Vodun from our publication Sacred Gods of Vodun: The Descriptions Vol 1 at http://www.restorationhealing.com/sacred-african-vodun-gods/ The Official Ganlodo Flag with All N'ko Script We also have a publication called Lore of the Gods: Authentic Stories of the Afrikan ...

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. Join us in spirit as we draw upon the powerful energy of Sakpátá and the Adanve spirits that assist him. ߊߜߊ ߏ߸ ߛߌ߫ߛߌ߫ ߘߊߊ߫ߜߏ߫߹ ߊߕߐߕߐ ߊߤߐ ߓߌ ߊߜ߯ߍߜߍߟߎ ߛߊߜ߳ߊ߫ߕߊ߫ ߙߏߕߏߤߎ߫ߣ ߊߕߏ߫ߕߏ߫* ߊߙߏߓߏߓߏ ߓߋߗߋߣ߹ ߛߊߜ߳ߊ߫ߕߊ߫ ߡߊߝ߯ߏ ߡߊߝ߯ߏ ߊߝ߯ߊߟߎ ߊߦߌߣߐߣ߸ ߊߖ߯ߐߣߕߏߣߎ߸ ߊߝ߯ߌߡߊߣߖߋ߸ ߊߖ߯ߎߣߛߎߣ߸ ߖߍߚߏߟߎ߸ ߊߚߏߟߎ߸ ߊߚߏߣߥߊߠߎ* ߡߌߘߏ ߜ߳ߋ* Agba o, sísí daágbó!
