What is Santeria Santería is the name used, primarily in the United States, to refer to the Afro-Cuban Lucumí religious traditions as they were syncretized with New World Catholicism during slavery. West Africans comprised the majority of Africans brought to the New World to work as slaves on the various plantations. In Cuba, the majority of Africans working in the cane fields were of the Yoruba tribe of Benin and Nigeria. They brought their Yoruban religious and cultural practices, but those practices were outlawed by the Catholic Church and plantation owners. Santería is often understood to be the merging of Lucumí and Catholicism, but practitioners generally practice both as separate but related religions in which they see no conflict. The religion is also called "Regla de Ocha". By any name, it references the belief in and reverence towards the Saints, or Orisha. Yoruba culture is at the heart of Lucumí traditions, including the Orisha, or spirits of guidance that have been syncretized and associated with Catholic saints as well. Through feasts, drumming, dancing, sacrifices, and daily rituals the Orisha are shown reverence.

Olorun Nagbe Iworo Santeria is a religious system with Yorubian roots. It was developed by natives who were kidnapped from Africa and forced to work in the sugarcane fields in Cuba and some of the Caribbean Islands. It is a rich hybrid of traditions brought from Africa and mixed with Roman Catholicism and Caribbean lore. . Orishas are considered messengers from the heavens, much like the Judeo-Christian angels. Santerians believe messages are constantly being conveyed from the Orishas. Divinations, sacred rituals, and trances are some of the ways that Santerians contact these messengers. Another ritual they practice is animal sacrifice, which is common in ancient religions. Santeros are the ordained high priests in Santeria. They have a divine commission to be head over all of the sacred rituals. To become a Santero, individuals spend a lot of time in study and devotion. Older Santeros mentor the initiates through a system of ceremonies and holy tests. New Santeros must prove themselves to be empathetic counselors who are deft in the arts of divination and herbalism. According to their beliefs, only those who are preordained by the Orishas will pass their tests to be a Santero.
