Oyeku Ofun Temple

Ifa and Orisha Temple in Arcata, Humboldt County, Northern California // A Peaceful Place for Divine Worship

Who is OYA?

“Oya ni o to iwo efon gbe.”
Oya alone can seize the horns of the rampaging buffalo



Nothing strikes faster than lightening
Buffalo warrior woman with fearless heart
Mother of nine children, one of whom is the Egun (the Dead)
Woman of fire, wife to Sango
We bow our heads to you
Spare us from your violent winds that wreak havoc
Bless us with your gentle winds that bring ire. Ase.
