Indigeneity in African Religions: Oza Worldviews, Cosmologies and Religious Cultures

Based on religious ethnography, in-depth interviews and archival data, Indigeneity in African Religions explores the historical origins, worldviews, cosmologies, ritual symbolism and praxis of the indigenous Oza people in South West Nigeria. The author's locationality and positionality plugs the book within decolonizing knowledges and indigeneity discourses, thus unpacking the complexity of “indigeneity” and contributing to its conceptual understanding within socioreligious change in contemporary Africa. The future of Oza indigeneity in the face of modernity is illuminated against the backlash of encounters, contestations with multiple hegemonies, transmissions of Christianity and Islam and indigenous (re)appropriations. Thus, any theorizations of such encounters must be cognizant of instantiations of indigeneity politics and identity, culture, tradition and power dynamics. Through decolonizing burdens of history, memory and method, Afe Adogame demonstrates a framework of understanding Oza indigenous religious,sociocultural and political imaginaries.

  1. Dr WAter is the only one who could ever get my HERPES and Shingles cured with his herbal products. I have tried almost everything but i couldn't find any solution to my painful rashes and stripe of blisters. Despite all these happening to me, i always spend a lot on buying HERPES drugs from hospitals and taking some several medications but no relief, until one day i was just browsing on the internet when i came across a great post of Henriette, who truly said that she was been diagnose with HERPES and was healed through the help of these great powerful herbal doctor. Sometime i really wonder why people called him Dr. WAter, i never knew it was all because of the great and perfect work that he has been doing that made him so popular. So, I quickly contacted him, and he ask me some few questions and then he said something i will never forget. He said that anyone who has used his herbal medicine always get healed after 2 weeks. I was amazed, because i could sense that he was being very honest, so i did all that he requested to buy this medicine. When i started using this medicine, after a few days the blisters were all gone, no rashes on my body anymore. I patiently waited to finish the dosage, before i went to a nearby hospital to see a gynacologist for check up. And i was told that i was negative of the herpes and shingle. I was very amazed and happy about the healing, and i can't hold my joy, so i am here to tell anyone going through similar health issues to stop wasting your money on hospital medicine, get Dr. WAter herbal products now and be healed.
