I'm sorry I've been away for a while, I've been doubting and finding and discovering on my own for a few months. But anyways, a while ago, I came across a book that suggested finding gods//deities of your own ethnic heritage. At the time, I was like, ?heck, no,? because then I was ashamed of being black, and I thought it was abnormal in the pagan world and not in line with the spiritual path I was pursuing. Now, of cousrse, I feel a bit better about that whole situation, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any deities that my ancestors might have worshiped. Of course, being a descendent of slaves, it's not as easy to know what country or tribe my ancestors came from as it is when your relatives immigrated... so I'm kind of at a loss for what to search for, since I'm not sure to search for Yoruba or Bantu or what. Not that I'm not satisfied with the Celtic and anorse pantheons, I just thought it might beneficial to my spiritual growth and my confidence. Could anyone help me in finding a spiritual path/pantheon of deities that reflect my heritage so I can reconnect with my roots?
