neighbouring nationalities located in Nigeria have this oral tradition of an origin extraneous to West Africa. Hugh Clapperton in 1820s reported a work by Sultan Bello, the Caliph of the Sokoto Caliphate, where he asserted that the Yorubas were descended from Canaanite tribe from Palestine. Around the 1880s Samuel Johnson a Yoruba christian also wrote a book that made similar claims for Yoruba origins as Sultan Bello’s. In 1880, Johson naively sent this work to the Church Missionary Society in England for review and publication. The Church Missionary Society suppressed the manuscript upon realizing the explosive information it contained. The Society declared the book lost. It was not until 1923 that Johson’s brother was able to publish an edited copy of this work. Johnson’s thesis was that the Yorubas were descended from Lamurudu (Nimrod) the first King of Mesopotamia. Johnson died in 1901. 1955 S.O. Obiaku, a Nigerian historian and scholar claimed a Meroite origin (Sudan/ancient Ethiopia-Kush) for the Yorubas. Emmanuel Uguhulu another respected Nigerian scholar claimed a Hebrew origin for the Esan tribe. Esan is part of the greater Edo nation, which is related to the Yoruba nation of Nigeria. Efik traditions claim that the Efiks originated in Palestine, crossed the Sahara and arrived Nigeria via Sudan. The Efiks are located in the south-eastern corner of Nigeria. Iberian Jews of Yoruba Nationality The Bnai Ephraim (“Children of Ephraim”) from Nigeria, live among the Yoruba nationalities. Their oral history tells that the Bnai Ephraim people came from Morocco after the Jews were banished from the Iberian Pennisula sometime after 1492. They speak a dialect that is a mixture of Moroccan Arabic, Yoruba, and Aramaic. They are known by the Yoruba people as the “Emo Yo Quaim”, or “strange people”. Unlike other African Israelite communities in Nigeria, the Bnai Ephraim have the Torah, portions of which they keep in their sanctuaries. The name Lagos borne by the former capital of Nigeria is a Portugese/ Iberian name meaning the lake. Lagos is an Island carved up by lagoons, swamps and lakes. Its traditional Nigerian name is Eko. Thousands of black refugee Jews of Iberia re-settled in the environs of Lagos and Porto Novo (as well as in Cape Verde, Guinea Buissa, and in Sao Tome either as slaves or outlaws). Some groups eventually made it deeper inland and became assimilated into one nationality or the other. The Bnai Ephraim provides a living and irrefutable proof of this barely known history of mass Jewish re- settlement in West Africa, between 1492 and 1692, a 200 year non-stop return of Jews to Africa. This set of Moorish refugees are not to be confused with more ancient Hebrew and Canaanite tribes that had been living in Nigeria and other African countries for thousands of years. The Black Jew series on Rasta Livewire deals with the relatively more ancient Hebrews of Africa. The Bnai Ephraim did not settle with the Yorubas by accident or chance. They recalled that a body of their people had depart Canaan in the ancient times and had settled in the present day Yoruba areas of Nigeria, just like their own group – Bnai Ephraim – had settled in Iberia (Spain and Portugal). So, when it happened they had to leave Iberia in a hurry to protect their lives and freedom, those Moorish Iberian Jews sailed on their network of ships to Nigeria Africa, near Lagos amongst the Yorubas, their relation by blood, their greater nationality. Other series on this website will continue to explore the foot-tracks of the Hebrew Israelites of Africa whose stories barely get told. Now, they shall not only be heard, they shall also be seen.

Slave Coast
A 1729 map, showing the
Slave Coast
The Slave Coast is the
name of the coastal areas
of present Togo, Benin
(formerly Dahomey) and
western Nigeria, a fertile
region of coastal Western
Africa along the Bight of
Benin. In pre-colonial
times it was one of the
most densely populated
parts of the African
continent. It became one
of the most important
export centers for the
Atlantic slave trade from
the early 16th century to
the 19th century.
Other West African regions
historically known by their
prime colonial export are
Gold Coast (modern-day
Ghana), Ivory Coast
(modern-day Côte d'Ivoire)
, and Pepper Coast (or
Grain Coast, in modern-
day Liberia).
History
According to most
research, the beginnings
of the slave trade in this
area are not well
documented. It is difficult
to track the development
of trade in this area and its
integration into the
Atlantic slave trades
before about 1670, when
European sources begin to
document this interaction.
The slave trade became so
extensive in the 18th and
19th centuries that an
“Atlantic community” was
formed.[1] The slave trade
was facilitated on the
European end by the
Portuguese (mostly by
Portuguese Empire's
Brazilians), the Dutch, the
French and the British.
Slaves went to the New
World, mostly to Brazil
and the Caribbean. Ports
that exported these slaves
from Africa include Ouidah,
Lagos, Aného (Little Popo),
Grand-Popo, Agoué, Jakin,
Porto-Novo, and Badagry.
These ports traded in
slaves that were supplied
by African communities,
tribes and kingdoms,
including the Alladah and
Ouidah, which were later
taken over by the
Dahomey kingdom.
Researchers estimate that
between 2 and 3 million
slaves were exported out
of this region and were
traded for goods like
alcohol and tobacco from
the Americas and textiles
from Europe. This complex
exchange fostered political
and cultural as well as
commercial connections
between these three
regions. Religions,
architectural styles,
languages, knowledge,
and other new goods
were mingled at this time.
Slaves as well as free men
used the exchange routes
to travel to new places
which aided in hybridizing
European and African
cultures. Intermarriage has
been documented in ports
like Ouidah where
Europeans were
permanently stationed.
Communication was quite
extensive between all
three areas of trade, to the
point where even
individual slaves could be
tracked. [2]
After slavery had been
abolished by European
countries, the slave trade
continued for a time with
independent traders
(instead of government
agents). Cultural
integration had become so
extensive that the
defining characteristics of
each culture were
increasingly broadened. In
the case of Brazilian
culture—which had
differentiated itself from
Portuguese culture
through its combination of
African, Portuguese and
New World traditions—
Brazilian-style dress,
cuisine and speaking
Portuguese had become
the main requirements for
Brazilian identity,
regardless of ethnicity,
religion, or geographic
Re: Who Are These Yorubas? by macof(m): 10:30pm On Sep 05, 2013
Originally Yoruba didn't come from anywhere. God created the first humans in ile-ife. Migration started from ile-ife. Most people won't believe ifa they prefer to believe the texts of the Torah, however I have some proof. Genesis 4:14-17 clearly interprets that Adam and Eve were not the only people on earth at any point. I don't have time to write it here but pls check yourself if u have a Bible. Cain wanted to die in the hands of another person as punishment after his banishment, how could that be when he and his parents(Adam and Eve) were suppose to be the only humans on earth. Cain settled in a land east of Eden married and had a son(Enoch), Enoch married and had more generations springing up. How come Cain saw a wife outside Eden? How did the wife come to earth when she was not Adam and Eve's daughter?. Yoruba religion and traditionally stories is the only one I know that provides a story of an existing land where mankind was created

Some people have attacked the story of Oduduwa coming from heaven and being a son of God saying it's ridiculously impossible but I say it's possible. Genesis 6:4. there were giants on earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and bare for them children, the same became mighty men which were renown.

What the sultan of sokoto wrote in his book is bullshit, his people are Arab inclined but Yoruba is unique owning the first lands with red sand, Adam means red sand, the item Obatala used to mold men was red sand, red sand is everywhere in ile-ife, red sand is used to make all Yoruba sculptures.

Present Yoruba has had people from different parts of the world come and live peacefully over the centuries and even become yorubas. In lagos and Ibadan just to mention a few, many migrants have stopped there and nationalised. My family history states that we originated from Nupe and were accepted in peacefully knowing that yorubaland, ile-ife mostly is the true home of all.

Cain was not around when this part of the scripture was written, Genesis was not written on the day God made man, so it is an ex-post facto write-up. You do not believe the torah, but you want your story to be believed when it also seems to be spinning from the same source. what shall we believe?

Cain settled in a land east of Eden married and had a son(Enoch), Enoch married and had more generations springing up. How come Cain saw a wife outside Eden?


Eden at the said time has become a landmark, it was no longer the dwelling-place of the first family. Adam and Eve bore sons and daughters, there was no established morality of people not marrying their sibling at this time, so Cain who lived for hundreds of Years married one of his sisters. This people lived long enough to procreate, bros.

macof:
How did the wife come to earth when she was not Adam and Eve's daughter?.


God commanded them to be fruitful and multiply and to replenish the earth. This was God's first commandment to Adam and Eve which extended to their children.

Yoruba religion and traditionally stories is the only one I know that provides a story of an existing land where mankind was created

it may not be the only one there is, but it may be the only one you know, you can find out more upon research. mixing traditional believe with Christianity is called synchretism.

what happened to those son of God who did that at the end, when God destroyed the wicked generation? So the Yorubas hid somewhere until after the flood, they must have outsmart God somewhere.

JUDE 6 "And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day."

Sultan Bello wrote thesis, just like the way Yoruba tradition made it to press. he may not be correct, just as the same tradition you are now waxing strong upon, you do not have to say because it is oral tradition, it should state what it likes and it would be taken as fact, then i will believe immediately in your variation of genesis story as doctrinal too. Meanwhile your position and polemics are glaringly faulty.

That's a great insight anyway, but if you want to interpret such word, you have to free yourself from all you know before from other relative religions and concentrate on Yoruba resource. it is when you do not have a tangible meaning that you conclude from external source.

Olodu: one who struggles for something, mare: continuing. Olodumare is "one who struggles to sustain continuity."

'Are' is as you have rightly pointed out is 'wanderer.'

we don't have to covet what others have as long as we can share,
what is the point in taking away what others cherished just like we do all because we are just realizing something?
it is always good to approach issue from the normal logical perspective rather than spoiling for slander to overtake.

its nice to clear our minds and approach our quest from simple but effective perspective.
alright, its just a piece of idea. Olodumare is olodumare, Yahweh is Yahweh.

Yoruba share culture with the Ancient Israelites:
1. 8th day baby-naming
2. Male circumcision
3. Proof of virginity on wedding day
4. Levirate marriage (restoring a widow into marriage by a relative of the deceased) aka 'su li opo', meant to produce offspring for the childless deceased and/or sustenance of the widow, as seen in the case of Ruth and Boaz but corrupted by greedy people for taking over the deceased's 'non-ancestral' property and wealth.
5. New Yam festival is a mirror of the Biblical First fruits feast. Not supposed to eat of the new yam until the festival has been conducted, as with the First fruits'feast where the priest offers the grain etc offering to God first. See Yoruba proverb 'Aj'egbodo ti n wa enu kun ra';
6. Omi Ayelala is a 'version' of the 'bitter water' administered by the Biblical priests in cases of suspected adultery.

to mention but a few.

1. Not being able to get rid of the 'h' sound, e.g saying 'hindomie' instead of 'indomie', is an Hebraic 'marker'. See Modern Hebrew words.
2. Not being able to say 'sh', e.g saying 'cusin siar' instead 'cushion chair' is another Hebraic 'marker' in the form of a 'speech defect'. This is a characteristic of the Ephraimites who were slaughtered in Ancient Israel when they could not pass the 'Shibboleth' pronunciation test.

These markers are widespread amongst people who speak various Yoruba dialects from OYO, OSUN, EKITI, ONDO and some parts of KWARA and possibly Kogi. Some people have been able to override the 'markers'.

It is very possible that we have 'arabs' among us in yoruba land, given that Islamic persecution led to many black arabs/edomites leaving their homelands. They would settle easily with the Yoruba given similarities in language and 'non-islamic' culture, since the Edomites lived close and in cases side by side with Israelites in ancient times. Many Jews had arabic names before Islam came to be at all. Many Yoruba Muslims today are actually descendants of Israel who converted to Islam voluntarily or under force. The Islamic hatred for the 'people of promise' is evident in the treatment of black slaves in the Arab Slave trade, and in today's treatment of black domestic workers in the hands of 'modern arabs'.

Many tribes surrounding the Yoruba people of Nigeria, Togo and Benin in these countries and in Ghana are also descendants of other Israelite tribes. It was the colonial masters who set up artificial boundaries between the ISRAELITE nation in West Africa.

Research by Prince O Jejelola has revealed the Yoruba language to be the Ancient Hebrew tongue, with his Paleo-Hebrew translation work of the Torah yielding information missing from current Bible translations. His work has also looked at many Biblical names, and they are yielding Yoruba words when the correct vowels are inserted.

2. Not being able to say 'sh', e.g saying 'cusin siar' instead 'cushion chair' is another Hebraic 'marker' in the form of a 'speech defect'. This is a characteristic of the Ephraimites who were slaughtered in Ancient Israel when they could not pass the 'Shibboleth' pronunciation test.

These markers are widespread amongst people who speak various Yoruba dialects from OYO, OSUN, EKITI, ONDO and some parts of KWARA and possibly Kogi. Some people have been able to override the 'markers'.

It is very possible that we have 'arabs' among us in yoruba land, given that Islamic persecution led to many black arabs/edomites leaving their homelands. They would settle easily with the Yoruba given similarities in language and 'non-islamic' culture, since the Edomites lived close and in cases side by side with Israelites in ancient times. Many Jews had arabic names before Islam came to be at all. Many Yoruba Muslims today are actually descendants of Israel who converted to Islam voluntarily or under force. The Islamic hatred for the 'people of promise' is evident in the treatment of black slaves in the Arab Slave trade, and in today's treatment of black domestic workers in the hands of 'modern arabs'.

Many tribes surrounding the Yoruba people of Nigeria, Togo and Benin in these countries and in Ghana are also descendants of other Israelite tribes. It was the colonial masters who set up artificial boundaries between the ISRAELITE nation in West Africa.

Research by Prince O Jejelola has revealed the Yoruba language to be the Ancient Hebrew tongue, with his Paleo-Hebrew translation work of the Torah yielding information missing from current Bible translations. His work has also looked at many Biblical names, and they are yielding Yoruba words when the correct vowels are inserted.




lmao.

If you believe you are Hebrew you will find what you will use to hold on to that belief, similarly if you believe you are Chinese, you will find what to hold on to

All those things you listed are not peculiar to yoruba and Hebrews
1. most old cultures of the world circumcise and expect virginity on wedding day
2. The core principle of the new Yam Festival is to mark the beginning of a new agricultural year, different from the principle of the Hebrew first fruit
3. Yoruba can say "Sh".. There are names like Shola, words like Ìṣe (Act) Ìṣẹ́(work)
4. Hebrew culture isn't specific on how many days it takes to name a child, and the culture certainly doesn't require an elaborate celebration unlike the Yoruba culture


Prince O. Jejeloba? Never heard of him... Is he a linguist? And what institution did he publish under?

Yoruba share culture with the Ancient Israelites:
1. 8th day baby-naming
2. Male circumcision
3. Proof of virginity on wedding day
4. Levirate marriage (restoring a widow into marriage by a relative of the deceased) aka 'su li opo', meant to produce offspring for the childless deceased and/or sustenance of the widow, as seen in the case of Ruth and Boaz but corrupted by greedy people for taking over the deceased's 'non-ancestral' property and wealth.
5. New Yam festival is a mirror of the Biblical First fruits feast. Not supposed to eat of the new yam until the festival has been conducted, as with the First fruits'feast where the priest offers the grain etc offering to God first. See Yoruba proverb 'Aj'egbodo ti n wa enu kun ra';
6. Omi Ayelala is a 'version' of the 'bitter water' administered by the Biblical priests in cases of suspected adultery.

One tribe in Ancient Israel was recorded as not being able to say 'sh'. I did not say that all Yoruba cannot say 'sh'. Read my post again.

God doesn't need linguists to reveal hidden matters! He is quite happy with 'babes', stutterers and those looked down on. That's his MO! grin
