SAFE – Santeros Against Fraud and Exploitation

Santeros Against Fraud and Exploitation (SAFE) is an action committee of the Santeria Church of the Orishas

We at the Santeria Church of the Orishas are dedicated to education and ethical practice of Santeria. In an effort to educate the public about any unethical or fraudulent activity, we have launched SAFESanteros Against Fraud and Exploitation. SAFE is an action committee of our church dedicated to exposing any activities considered fraudulent or non-traditional according to the culture bearers of the Santeria faith. SAFE will issue “SAFE Alerts” here on our blog to notify the public of such activities to prevent exploitation of the public or other unethical activities.

You can learn more about SAFE and our Code of Ethics and Conduct at the SAFE page.

Welcome to the Santería Church of the Orishas

The Santeria Church of the Orishas is dedicated to the worship of Olodumare (God), the Orishas and our Egun (Ancestors). Our church adheres to the tenets and practices of Santeria (La Regla Lucumi/Lukumí) and welcomes all who are interested in learning more about Santeria, the Orishas, the ancestors or traditional Afro-Cuban religions. We are based in the Greater Los Angeles area of California.

We offer educational services in the form of in-person clases, online articles and lectures at local colleges and universities. Our religious services include spiritual guidance through Diloggún divination (Santeria Cowrie Shell readings), Obí readings (Santeria coconut readings), spiritualist mediumship readings, in-person cleansings, ebós (rituals), initiations and Egun (Ancestor) veneration meetings.

The Santeria Church of the Orishas is a part of the Missionary Independent Spiritual Church movement from Forestville, California.

We believe in the immanence of spirit, the intercessory power of prayer, and the efficacy of the practice of setting vigil lights for petitions and praise.
