Giving Thanks to the Ancestors


My Father Making an Offering to Ogun

My father and I walked into the forest this week to the site of our old house which sits on land that our ancestors have used for well over 300 years.  When we go into the forest, we stop here at our ancestral shrine to pay tribute to Esu and Ogun, and all other irunmole sacred to our lineage and to our quest.  By offering ebo, we are accessing the deities and the divine help they can bring us. We ask for help in finding the wood we need, for protection for ourselves and our families, and for all who might benefit from our work.
