This is the image unifying the Orisha traditions worldwide. As the Yoruba-slaves in Cuba or Brasil started using Spanish or Portuguese orthography while back in Africa the first offical Yoruba-grammar was developed, today there are many misunderstandings between the once separated branches. 

This image tries to unite the communities – wherever you are, whether you name yourself an Oloricha (Spanish/Lukumi), Olorixa (Portuguese/Nago), Olorisha (English) or Olorisa (Yoruba) – what is most important is your love to the Orisha! We are all the same, no matter what language we are using.
