In February 2017 Siana was Initiated as an Iyanifa & Olorisha (Priestess) in Ifá, a traditional West African Spiritual practice of the Yoruba people of Nigeria. This work is a collection of different moments she experienced during her 10 day journey and 7 day initiation ceremony.

Pictures from her Initiation and pilgrimage will be posted on & @IAMXENOPHON

To all of the Iyanifa's, Olorisha's, Oshun Priestess, Babalawo's, and family at the compound I owe you my life! To my mothers the women who bathed me, fed me, comforted me, and took care of me I wouldn't have been able to get through the initiation process without you.

Thank you to my friends, family, and community who donated to my Gofundme you all brought me to Nigeria.

Yeye Osun may you continue to bless us and guide us, Asé.
