Series 2: Research Materials on Cuba and Abakuá Society
1900-2006 (bulk 1975-2005)


This series consists of a variety of research materials related to Miller's study of the linguistic, musical, and religious influence of West African Ekpe society (predominantly in Nigeria and Cameroon) on the Cuban Abakuá Society, which was founded in 1830. (See also Series 3 for original audio and video interviews related to this research.) This series is largely unsorted.

Authorizations for Santería ceremonies during the Cuban Revolution. Contains official permission slips from the PNR (Revolutionary National Police). These were applied for by leaders of Santería communities in Cuba in order to hold authorized Santería ceremonies during the Cuban Revolution. I collected these during the course of my dissertation research from people I interviewed.

Contents as described by Ivor Miller in 2003:

1) Permission for a Santería initiation on 17 October. 1987 in Parraga, on the outskirts of Havana, Francisca Lopez Zaldivar being the applicant. [I used her testimony in my article "Religious Symbolism in Cuban Politics", TDR.]

2) Permission for a "religious feast" in October 1989 in Jovallanos, Matanzas, Saturnina Angarica Solar being the applicant. The feast included drum playing, and the sacrifice of goats and rams. [I am writing a book about this family, very famous in Cuban Santería traditions].

3) Permission for a Santería ceremony called Lucumi food for the saint, meaning animal sacrifice, in 15 April 1975, Francisca Lopez Zaldivar being the applicant.

4) Permission for a "traditional feast" in October 1988 in Jovallanos, Matanzas, Saturnina Angarica Solar being the applicant. Note that for the second feast on 23 October, 500 people are expected. I have a video of one of these ceremonies in the collection.

5) Permission for a Santería initiation of two people in July 1987 in Carlos Rojas, Matanzas, Saturnina Angarica Solar being the applicant. The ceremony included the sacrifice of animals with four legs, birds, and drumming.

6) Permission for a "Güiro playing ceremony" on 28 December 1988 in Parraga, on the outskirts of Havana, Francisca Lopez Zaldivar being the applicant. Güiro is a calabash gourd, dried and hollowed, with beads around it for sound. It is a sacred Santería instrument mythically associated with Ochún, Yoruba goddess of sweet water, love, beauty.
