    Hola Obara Meji, Famuwango (sp?) All readers and Ifa children.

    Nyaha1, I LOVE, LOVE paakis and this one I remember from the other site. The best way to read the patakis is to visualize what’s being read or told orally. This one just comes to life visually.

    this was entertaining- how did these stories come about

    1. Cami says:

      Hey, Lincoln. Patakis are also creation stories and are found in every society on earth. They are great and have a lasting impression if told correctly. They kind of explain the meaning of life, of individual entities. They help you to look at life and things no matter how simple or complex, they reinforce one’s system of belief.

      Obara…how is that in short? lol
