'Olókun’ is a continuation of my encompassing work on ‘Spirituality and Beliefs’, exploring the rich cultural heritage of 'Ifá', a traditional African religion and system of divination, believed by the Yoruba people of Southwest Nigeria to be the 'first religion on earth' and the foundation for all traditional practices and beliefs. The influence and practice of 'Ifá' transcend the borders of Africa, with many countries around the world embracing the 'Ifá' divination system. In 2005, UNESCO added it to its list of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
Despite its significance, colonialism brought with it numerous misconceptions about the spirituality, people, and practice of traditional religions in Africa. 'Olókun’s focus is on the role and contributions of women in the concept and practice of ‘ifa’. Women play a significant part in Yoruba traditional religion, yet their contributions are often overlooked or misunderstood. 'Olókun’ showcases the sophisticated system of spirituality and divination that has been passed down from generation to generation, and the pivotal role that women have played in preserving and passing the Yoruba traditions down to future generations.
