DADAAlso 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.
