Yemaya is the Afrocuban spelling of the Yoruba Orisa Yemoja. Goddess of the Ogun River and all waters, especially the sea, her name comes from the Yoruba “Yeye emo eja” and means: “Mother whose children are the fishes”. She represents motherhood, nurturing, healing. She is bountiful and plenteous, full of selfless generosity. Normally gentle and calm, her anger is swift and terrible like a tsunami. She is the Mother of the world and sustains all living things, as water sustains life. Her colours are dark blue and white like the ocean, and her dance expresses the motion of the waves.
