Abstract

Yoruba religion, John Mason, recognizes the power of this kind of nomadic participatory practice: we often hear the word syncretism used when discussing Black reli­ gion. But, I would suggest that with closer scrutiny it will be discov­ ered that Blacks compromised little in the maintenance of their culture. Instead they might be viewed as waging a transcultural war that today, in many places where Blacks find themselves, would be extremely difficult to ascertain who won or is winning.
