Yoruba Is On Track To Be An Official Language In Brazil by TheLionofLasigi(m): 3:05am On Nov 28, 2020
Brazil’s minister of culture has announced that Yoruba will become one of their official languages and African history will be added school curriculum.

Brazil has accumulated quite a number of Yoruba speakers and Orisha worshippers.

The African slaves from the west, carried along their Yoruba religion with them when they were brought to Brazil. This religion is referred to as Candomblé by Afro-Brazilians — a religion that seeks harmony with nature. This culture and religion is still very much relevant and gave birth to the Òrìsà-worshipping and Yoruba-speaking people of Brazil.

Last week at AYO, after a national meeting of African-Brazilian storytellers, It was alleged that the Brazilian minister of culture, Dr Sérgio Sá leitão announced that Yoruba is now one of their official languages and language and African History will be introduced as a compulsory subject in primary and secondary schools curriculum. However, the Brazilian Ministry of Culture has denied this and will keep us updated on further changes.
In attendance of this meeting, in Quilombola, were big names such as renowned Professor Wole Soyinka, Dr. Sophie Oluwole, the first female PhD holder in Yoruba Philosophy, and painter and illustrator Adeyinka Olaiya.
If this move is made, it will do well in bringing Afro-Brazilians closer to their roots and help them better understand the link between the current Brazilian practices and Western Yoruba cultures.

Brazil is not a African country to speak yorubá. Brazil never adopt a African language official language because
1 - Brazil is not a African country.
2 - Brazil is not a entirely black country.
3 - yorubá is a cultural patrimony of Rio de janeiro not all Brazil
4- The only second official language in Brazil is indigenous Language
5 - Anyone speak yorubá in Brazil. Only in Afro Brazilian religion candomblé. Candomblé is only 3% of Brazil
6- Brazil don't have 80 million of yorubá. Brazil have 80 million of trirracial Brazilians. Native American, European, and African.

The only originally Brazilians was indigenous. don't exist the "percent of Brazilians who were originally slave". Brazilian population is majority descendant of Europeans, Africans who became Brazil during slavery or less extent Amerindian. Black Brazilians of predominantly African Ancestry are 10% of the population. Pardos 43%
Not all Brazilians married with black Brazilians. Many Brazilians are descendant of immigrants or only have a African ancestor from slavery. Or mulattos married with white Brazilians. The imposition 50% of Brazil population is black is ridiculous in my opinion.

I think we are saying the same think

Brazil is a mixture of different people with different origin who were brought in during slavery

but I believe that before those people ( slaves ) were brought, persons already lived there

Yes 2/3 Million of Indians. And a mixture of Europeans and immigrants with different origin who travel for Brazil. Slaves with all Brazil population. There is a lack of study believe that yorubá is a official language in Brazil. African heritage in Brazil is so exaggerated. Because black Brazilians have their regions most visited by foreign tourists, as they are more publicized by government propaganda, and for this reason they are considered by foreigners as the '' official '' and predominant Brazilian culture. This bullshit of defining an '' official '' culture started at the time of Brazilian dictadorship Getúlio Vargas in 1950. Which would be prejudice because Brazil is a multicultural country

You're being the dumb monkey who lacks comprehension, I never said it was an official language, as the thread title states; Yoruba is on track to being an official language in Brazil. Next time read fully before acting like a stupid brainlet.

Yorubá is not on track to being an official language in Brazil. Never. Please don't be stupid. Yorubá is a cultural patrimony of Brazil. Brazil have whites, people of Asian Ancestry, indigenous, coloured people, people of arab descent. Imagine Brazil a Latin American country impose a African language for all Brazilians. Whites obligated to speak yorubá, indigenous, gypsies, arab Brazilians, asian Brazilians. This supposition is ridiculous ( Yoruba is on track to being an official language in Brazil. )
because Brazil is a multirracial country. Is not a entirely black country to making a African language official language.

Ha grin the yorubas was a multi tribal group before it was united under the Oyo Empire... White, black or asian... nothing stops Yoruba from being part of an official language in Brazil, China or the United Kingdom. If you're not okay with that you can jump in the lake.
