In  1970 Oba Oseijeman Adefunmi I and a hand full of Cultural Nationalist, left the urban temples of N.Y., Chicago and Indiana,ventured into  the swamps of the South Carolina Lowcountry and built the Kingdom of Oyotunji. Thus reclaiming the Culture and Traditions of the Yoruba ancestors and deities. Forty years later, North America’s oldest, authentic African village still stands. Each year throngs of people from all walks of life journey to this tiny Village that, " just wouldn't die." The large temples, museum style tour and monthly festivals were designed to inspire and display the Culture and Religion of the African descendants in N. America. The village residents live in a group of simple structures, wear colorful West Africa garments and provide spiritual counseling and religious training for individuals seeking to rediscover the culture of their ancestors.

His Majesty Oba Adejuyigbe Adefunmi II has expressed the desire to share a brief history of Oyotunji and parts of the cultural restoration movement that actually began in the fifties and led to the establishment of this very unique community located in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
