AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

DADA

African Abundance God

Also known as EDA, IDA

God of Natural Produce (including children)

No connection with the surrealist Dada movement, so far as we know. He is one of the ORISHAS born of YEMAYA. His specialty is the production of organic natural goods. By his definition this also includes children. We think this is perfectly reasonable, as long as you don’t eat them.

We are not sure if he is willing to touch genetically-modified or intensively-farmed foods. If DADA doesn’t regulate these things, who does?
