Description

Iemanja is an orisha, originally of the Yoruba religion, who has become prominent in many Afro-

American religions. For the believers she is the ocean, the essence of motherhood, and a

protector of children.

Africa: Yemoja, Ymoja, Iemanja Nana Borocum, Iemanja Bomi, Iemanja Boci
Brazil and Uruguay: Yemanj√°, Iemanj√°, Janaina

This deity is revered by thousands of people, believers and non-believers in the Umbandismo. On

2 February, thousands of people visit the beaches of the country, some motivated by faith, and

many for the simple power of curiosity.

Believers carry small boats with gifts, which throw the sea as an offering to Iemanja.
