The Influence Of Yoruba Religion And Gastronomy On The Yoruba Diaspora Of Cuba And Brazil: A Transnational Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
The forced integration of the Yoruba into the Atlantic World has led to gastronomic and religious influences on the diaspora in Cuba and Brazil. Both nations are linguistically different but the combined diaspora of Cuba and Brazil have been influenced by the cultural preservation of Yoruba norms transposed in Latin America via the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The implication of this assertion is that Yoruba influence is not limited by borders; rather, the influence of the Yoruba ethnic group is transnational. The cultural manifestation of the Yoruba is found in the religious and gastronomic practices of their diaspora in Cuba and Brazil.
