Oya is the Yoruba warrior-goddess of fire, wind, magic, fertility, and other chaotic, electrifying phenomena. She’s also the goddess of the Niger river, and she wears a lot of red!
She is not a goddess in quite the same sense as a Greco-Roman deity, but is an “orisha,” an elemental spirit.

Founded in 1776
The Order of the Illuminati was founded on May 1, 1776 in Bavaria, Germany. A couple of months later — on July 4, 1776 on the other side of the world — the signing of the Declaration of Independence marked the founding of the United States of America.

The Long-tailed Widowbird:
The Long-tailed Widowbird is found in Angola, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia.
The first time I saw this bird was in book when I was a little girl. We had to create a project and I instantly fell in love with this beauty. I first witnessed it with my own eyes a little later riding in a packed minicab with my mother traveling from South Africa to Lesotho to attend a funeral in our village. One flew alongside us as though chaperoning us to the pain and heavy freedom of a family burial. Squashed in between tired mine-workers, city dwellers going home, I fell in love even more. It’s my favourite bird.
I admit I forgot it was Earth Day today until I came across Dynamic Africa's posts on my Dashboard. Everyday is Earth Day for us Africans I believe. Nonetheless, seeing all that natural beauty reminded me of my favourite animals, birds, insects from home.
