ߚߥߋߟߍߣߜߐߛߎ Celebrating 700 Years of the Xwelɛngbɔsu Royal Dynasty

This weekend and all year long we celebrate the 700 years ago founding of the Afrikan royal dynasty of Xwelɛngbɔsu, the royal house of descent of the founder of Gànlɔdó! The Xwelɛngbɔsu royal dynasty of Xévíe (a city in what is now Southern Benin Republic west Afrika) was founded 700 years  ago by the toxwiyo (founding ancestor) Fánúkùn Jǐsovì ; a great diviner, spiritual intuitive, and leader of his community. He was of the Sɛ́to sub-ethnic group of the larger Aja collective identity. To be clear, in the year 5532 (1291 Julian calendar) the Jisovi family was recognized as a noble house and 30 years later in 5562 as a royal house under the ruling monarch of Xévíe at the time, Axɔ́si (Queen) Nunyawegla. Over its 510 year in existence in Afrika, the Xwelɛngbɔsu dynasty produced many powerfu...

ߤߥߋߕߊߣߎ ߞߎ߫ߟߌߕߐ߫ ߣߎߥߌߥߊ Annual 9 Day Ancestor Festival at Gànlɔdó

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. This being national ancestor month is a perfect time to carry out such a profound ceremony. Though we praise our ancestors all the time, this is a very ganji (auspicious) time to do so on a large national scale. This year is special for Gànlɔdó as it ma...
