Last month, a recently registered organization The Association of African Traditions of Trinidad & Tobago convened a meeting at the Creative Arts Centre, Mon Repos , San Fernando to introduce itself to the wider public and to present it’s proposals for Unity in the African community.
The meeting was attended by EGBE ONISIN ELEDUMARE, KENNY CYRUS ALKEBU -LAN ILE IJUBA, ILE OSUN / OBATALA SHRINE, ILE ISOKAN, and the conveners.
Those present endorsed the idea of UNITY . There was however a reminder to the new body from the floor that there was not a need to re- invent the wheel as there already exists umbrella bodies for both African Cultural organizations and Orisa, Shango, Ifa organizations in Republic Trinidad & Tobago.
Participants present were full of enthusiasm for a mechanism, means and medium for Unity, and all representatives present indicated that the would inform their respective organizations of the ideas proffered.
