Colorful Diaspora

This little description is going to keep changing because I am human. Humans change. I live and teach in New Orleans. I am black and very queer. I hope you enjoy some of my musings. If not, then oh well.

Chango (Xango, Shango) is a warrior, the Orisha of lightning, dance, and passion. He is the epitome of all things masculine, and the dispenser of vengeance on behalf of the wronged. Shango was likely once a Yoruban King. He is associated with St. Barbara. His colors are red and white, and his best known symbol is the oshe, a double bladed axe. He is sometimes associated with Vodoun’s Petro Loa, Erzulie Dantor.
