Africa – American Style!
Village in South Carolina imitates West African Culture!
Oyotunji African Village is located in Beaufort County, South Carolina and was founded by the late Oba Efuntola Oseijeman Adelabu Adefunmi in 1970. Today the village is promoted as an authentic Yoruba village and offers tours to the public.
Join The Kingdom of Oyotunji Village June 26- June 28, 2015 as we celebrate and venerate the primordial feminine energy! Yemoja is the Yoruba Orisha or Goddess of the living Ocean, considered the Mother of All. She is the source of all the waters, including the rivers of Western Africa, especially the River Ogun. Her name is a contraction of Yey Omo Eja, which means “Mother Whose Children are the Fish”. Join us in honoring the Yoruba deity and great mother Yemoja and heroine Moremi Ajasoro, June 26-June 28, 2015. Admission to Yemoja Festival is $15.
