Group Description

Ile Orunmila Sango was founded in Houston,Texas in 2003 by Baba Ifalade and Apetebi Iya Osunbunmi, a Priest of Ifa and Sango and a Priestess of Osun and an Apetebi, respectively.
We invite people who are interested in the Ifa tradition as practiced in Africa and the Diaspora to our group to learn and share more.
We ask that you are respectful of others and use Iwa Pele (the cultivation of good and gentle character) as the guideline for all behavior here.
Our current services include Ifa divination to determine one's head (Orisha) and it's complement (or "feet), or Ifa consultations in matters of health,business,or love.
We give the Ajagun (Warriors or "Guerreros") with elekes ("collares") and also present the one hand of Ifa. Women are given 18 Ikin in this Ile (a FULL hand) not the one or two given in other traditions. We "crown" or do Orisha initiations for the Priesthood (Babalorisha and Iyalorisha)
Baba Ifalade is a native of New Orleans and began practice as a Priest in the Hoodoo tradition after his initiation by Mama Black Venus
(Iya Oshutola/rose frank) in 1979. He received the rites of Ajagun(Warriors) from Iya Sango Larami of New York/Havana,Cuba in the Lucumi Tradition in 1983. She also introduced him to and helped him begin his studies with the noted Oluwo and fifth-generation Babalawo,Oluwo Afolabi Epega (Ode Remo,Nigeria)in 1985. He became a Priest of Sango and a Babalawo in 2003 in Akure,Nigeria under Oluwo Epega.
Apetebi Iya Osunbunmi received initiation to the Osun priesthood and the rites of Apetebi from Baba Epega and the attending Priests and Priestesses in 2003 in Akure as well.
Baba Ifalade is Oniseegun, having studied herbology with his own family which includes midwives and "root doctors", and in his travels to Central America,Africa,Japan,Mexico,and the Carribean.
Ile Orunmila Sango offers classes on Obi Abata divination, Merindilogun(for initiates ONLY),and periodic classes in Ifa metaphysics,Yoruba language,and Orisha songs.
