We have seen numerous people referring to the Daagbo of Ouidah as the "global leader of Vodun." And "His Majesty." There are a few things to keep in mind for those who are interested in the priority of Afrikan culture being presented correctly and not wrought with misinformation: first, for those not familiar, let us explain what a Daagbo is. It is a CHIEFTAINCY, not a coronated position. So the title of His majesty does not apply to his position and is misleading.

Also, people need to remember that he is the Daagbo of OUIDAH. Ouidah is a city. It is not an empire or country. He is not the Daagbo of Vodun, the Daagbo of Benin or any other false statements we've seen. He is the Daagbo of only that city and immediate surrounding area ONLY. The Ayizo, Seto,and others not only have no Daagbo, but don't recognize the authority of any Daagbo! So there is no way for a Daagbo to be "the global leader in Vodun" when his position isn't even recognized by many Aja people!

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
