What are the differences between Lucumí Santería and other Afro-Caribbean spiritual traditions?"





Lucumí Santería is one of several Afro-Caribbean spiritual traditions, each with unique characteristics.







 While specific differences can vary, key distinctions often lie in their cultural roots and practices. 






For instance:





Lucumí Santería (Cuban): Influenced by Yoruba traditions, it involves Orisha worship, ceremonies, and divination. It often incorporates Catholic elements due to historical syncretism.






Vodou (Haitian): Rooted in Haitian culture, Vodou features a pantheon of spirits (lwa). Rituals involve drumming, dancing, possession, and offerings to the spirits.





Candomblé (Brazilian): Originating in Brazil, Candomblé centers around Orisha worship, but the deities have different names and characteristics. It incorporates elements from indigenous and Afro-Brazilian cultures.





Santería (Cuban and Caribbean): Similar to Lucumí Santería, it involves Orisha worship but may exhibit regional variations. It often blends African and Catholic elements.






Ifá (Yoruba): Rooted in Nigeria and the Yoruba people, Ifá involves divination through the use of a system called Ifá. It's often practiced alongside other spiritual traditions.
