LIGHTING THE FLAMES OF JUSTICE

LIGHTING THE FLAMES

OLOYE ORAWLE ORANFE LIGHTS FLAMES FOR SANGO

EGBE ONISIN ELEDUMARE continues in it’s preparations for this year’s ASE ODUN SANGO 2010, that will be hosted in Ile – Iere, Republic Trinidad & Tobago.

Iere  is  the  original nomenclature of the  TAINO  people for the geopolity now named Trinidad. Ile is the Yoruba prefix that indicates geopolity.

For many years EGBE ONISIN ELEDUMARE have  used this nomenclature in respect of the right to name of the First Nation Peoples IN OUR MIDST.

As we begin this year’s celebration, like all other years and at all our events we pay respects to the custodians of the LAND,and to the spirits of their Ancestors. We thank  the  Supreme Intelligence for affording descendants of our original peoples to be  still present in our midst. We also take leave and permission from the Karina also known by the various nomenclatures such as Kalihna, Kalinya, Maraworno etc. with whom EGBE ONISIN ELEDUMARE  have a very good relation over many years particularly through Chief Ricardo Bharat – Hernandez and pyjai Atakosang  Cristo Adonis.

As we celebrate ASE ODUN SANGO 2010 , it is interesting to note that two of the principal crops cultivated by the First Nation Peoples of the region are very popular foods of SANGO. These foods/crops are  cassava,and corn.

Those of us who were fortunate enough to grow up when even parents and elders in town/city areas planted food crops would note that our town Elders planted at least four food crops where land space permitted. They were corn.peas,cassava and ochroes.  Our country Elders  included yam, and bananas  ( green fig ).

Perhaps through the similarity in food products and food consumption we were in the past able to bond our peoples in common struggle against an oppressor class that colonised the region. Can we do it again today?

As we light the flames to begin our Festival,may SANGO arrive.

As we light our flames , MAY JUSTICE IN OUR LAND PREVAIL.

As we light our flameS, MAY POVERTY AND ILL HEALTH BE BANISHED.

As we light our flames, MAY UNITY COME.

As we light our flames ,MAY RECOGNITION FOR THOSE WHO LIGHTED THE FIRST FLAMES OF RESISTANCE TO OPPRESSION AND FOREIGN IDEOLOGIES BE GRANTED.

As we light our flames , MAY SUCCESS BE OURS AT THIS YEAR’S ASE ODUN SANGO 2010. Aase!
