Who Practices Santería?

It's commonly believed that between 95 and 100 million people in the world practice some form of Santería today. It's one of the fastest growing religions in urban areas of the United States, especially cities with large African American and Latino poulations. In Cuba, statistics suggest that as much as 80% of the population has some connection to Santería. Globally, people of all races, socio-economic backgrounds and educational levels practice the Lucumi religion. It proudly holds on to its Afro-Cuban roots, but it's no longer limited to people with ethnic ties to Latin America and Africa.
When African slaves were brought to Cuba in colonial times, they weren't allowed to openly practice their African religions. Generally, they were forced to convert to Catholicism and show at least outward appearances of practicing the faith of their Spanish masters. Behind the veneer of Catholicism, however, Afro-Cubans kept their old religions alive by "syncretizing" their deities with Christian saints. They knew that the Virgin of Charity was not really Obatalá, but they saw some similarities between the two that allowed them to secretly worship Obatalá while appearing to worship the Virgin. Even today, you might find statues of Catholic Saints on the altar of a practicing Santero, but there'll be another altar somewhere in the house where the African symbols of the Orichas are kept. The two are never really confused in the minds of practitioners. The Orichas are complex, mystical beings, and their essence can't be expressed in a single image or form. They exist in the form of divine energy that is all around us and lives within us.
