The term “Santería” translates into English as the “way of the saints.” This is the most popular name for the religion, although some practitioners consider it offensive and avoid it in favor of alternatives.
Santería developed among Afro-Cuban communities amid the Atlantic slave trade of the 16th to 19th centuries. It formed through the blending of the traditional religions brought to Cuba by enslaved West Africans, the majority of them Yoruba, and Roman Catholicism, the only religion legally permitted on the island by the Spanish colonial government.©wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santer%C3%ADa/
