The Orishas are the deities of Yoruban religion (associated with Itan culture).  They are worshipped in religions around the world such as Candomblé (Brazil), Santería (Cuba), and many others.  By some counts, there are hundreds of Orishas.

Two of the most famous Orishas include Yemaja (the “Mother of Fish”), Orisha of the Sea and a mother figure for mankind, and Shango, Orisha of thunder and lightning.
