Yoruba Folklore

Shango (known as Changó or Xangô in Latin America; and also known as Jakuta) (from '=shan, 'to strike') is an Orisha. He is syncretized with either Saint Barbara or Saint Jerome. Shango is historically a royal ancestor of the Yoruba as he was the third Alafin (king) of the Oyo Kingdom prior to his posthumous deification.

  • Shango is venerated in the Spanish Santería and Palo (known as Changó); the Portuguese Candomblé and Umbanda (known as Xangô); the Trinidad Orisha; the Haitian Vodou; and the Louisiana Voodoo.


  • While the original Shango is in the public domain the modern versions used by Marvel or DC are NOT in the public domain.
