At our Reading of the Year, The Orisa
CDC was advised to commemorate Egun by playing Anya for deceased priests. As advised by Ifa, the ceremony is founded in the tradition of Honra and also Anya for Egun. On Saturday, August 18th, 2012, at the home of Joe Quinones, we played for Egun and also embraced the contribution that ancestors outside of the Orişa tradition have made in the development of the broader community. Therefore, we also honored some of our “national heroes” such as Malcolm X, Frederick Douglas, Martin Luther King Jr. and others, and paid homage to their contributions towards the development of vibrant and strong communities throughout Africa and the Diaspora.
