Ninth child – Oyá
Oyá Not unlike her sister’s Oya Llasan, brought a physical beauty to the world. Her appearance also brought great conflict to the orisa. Oya had eyes of amber they where large and round and very expressive. When the people made eye contact with her they would fall under her spell. With her birth into the kingdom also came the breath of life and movement of air, great storms and tornadoes. Although she was female and feminine, had a strong temperament and when she was forced to she would assume the personality of a masculine warrior in battle as well as lead others into war fighting as a equal at their side. Oya had the soul of a man and she was as brave and courageous as her brother Oggun in battle. Her name Llansan was the other side of her personality expressing her dominance over winds, and tornadoes. Along side her mother Yembo she could cause hurricanes in the ocean when she is mad with the human race. She would also come to one day hold the title of turning over the deceased bodies to Jeggua/Yewa when our mission on earth was done. It is here with the birth of Oya that the problems with Oggun and his brothers begin . A series of events that took place brought the belief of where the Yoruba mythology is based. In it is believed by the Yoruba that Olodumare lives amongst us in the form of the orisa which inhabit the earth. And Olodumare manifests himself through the acts of the orisa and will manifest and live till the end of time. Paths:
