Orisha Oya Statue 12"                              OYA is the Ruler of the Wind and Ruler of Tornadoes and She claims lightning as one of Her powers as well.  O-ya means “she tore” in Yoruba.  An elemental Goddess – Air, Fire Water – She incorporates all of them into Her.  She is the personification of the Niger River and has the power to shapeshift into a water buffalo (and in some stories, other animals in the wilderness). As a Female Warrior, She fights ferociously and is fearless in Her protection of Her children and mates.  Hunters and Chieftains seek OYA’s good graces for abundant hunting and in selecting strong leaders.  OYA is also the Owner of the Marketplace.
