Pagan Religions - What Is AMBA'S RELIGION?

 




The Amba tribesmen of Uganda have a fluid system that includes several deities and rituals. 


Not only people live in Amba's universe, but so have a host of supernatural beings divided into two categories: ancestors and gods. 



  • The bulk of a man's ceremonial activities, particularly those related to death, are focused on his forefathers. 
  • The underworld is compared to the living world, and ancestors are seen as beings who must be appeased on a regular basis. 
  • Both deified humans and nonhuman gods have shrines erected in their honor. 
  • To overcome an enemy, tribesmen employ a priest to seek the assistance of one of four lineage gods.
  •  Anyone descended from one of these gods is allowed to seek his assistance.
