Santeria is a religious system with Yorubian roots. It was developed by natives who were kidnapped from Africa and forced to work in the sugarcane fields in Cuba and some of the Caribbean Islands. It is a rich hybrid of traditions brought from Africa and mixed with Roman Catholicism and Caribbean lore.
Santeria creates a common bond between many cultures.
The beliefs and rituals of Santeria are diverse and intricate. Practitioners of Santeria believe in divine beings called Orishas. They use Catholic saints to represent these beings. While living under the heavy hand of their Catholic masters, they could secretly practice their religion without the colonists knowing. They use Spanish and bits of their original language for Santeria’s liturgy.
Orishas are considered messengers from the heavens, much like the Judeo-Christian angels. Santerians believe messages are constantly being conveyed from the Orishas. Divinations, sacred rituals, and trances are some of the ways that Santerians contact these messengers. Another ritual they practice is animal sacrifice, which is common in ancient religions.
Santeros are the ordained high priests in Santeria. They have a divine commission to be head over all of the sacred rituals. To become a Santero, individuals spend a lot of time in study and devotion. Older Santeros mentor the initiates through a system of ceremonies and holy tests. New Santeros must prove themselves to be empathetic counselors who are deft in the arts of divination and herbalism. According to their beliefs, only those who are preordained by the Orishas will pass their tests to be a Santero.
