The hundreds of gods of the African Continent!!!
Africa is a huge continent, with hundreds of different cultures, languages, styles and above all, myths and legends! From the epics of Western Africa to the stories of the eastern coast, to the many gods and goddesses of the southern portion, Africa is bursting with amazing stories, legends and deities!
Although no single set of myths and legends unites this diverse population, different culture groups and regions share some common elements. Like myths from other parts of the world, those of the African peoples reflect beliefs and values. But while the mythologies of many cultures are carefully preserved relics of ancient times, African myths and legends are still a meaningful part of everyday life. Some African myths deal with universal themes, such as the origin of the world and the fate of the individual after death. Yet many spring from the continent's own settings, conditions, and history.
