Discover the vibrant heritage of the Yoruba people, whose history stretches over a millennium. Rooted in the ancient city of Ile-Ife, the cradle of Yoruba culture, this civilization flourished with sophisticated art, intricate social structures, and influential political systems. From the 11th to the 15th centuries, Ile-Ife was a beacon of urbanization and cultural development, showcasing advanced governance in its kingdoms and city-states. The heart of Yoruba culture lies in its rich oral traditions and mythology. These stories, encompassing the origins of the Yoruba people, their revered Orisa (gods), and esteemed ancestors, have been cherished and passed down through generations. They form an integral part of our cultural heritage, connecting us to our past and guiding us in the present. This coloring book is born from a desire to capture and share these tales, offering a visual journey for Yoruba people in the diaspora. It aims to connect them back to their roots, celebrating the depth and diversity of our culture. Through this artistic exploration, we invite you to immerse yourself in the world of Yoruba mythology, history, and tradition, rekindling a bond with our shared heritage.
