Anonymous asked: Salamecum tata, someone who has taught me a lot about palo passed away more than a decade ago and I'm not in position to find a new nzo, however I'd be happy to help folk using what I know w/e hiding behind terms like 'witchcraft', when I well damned know what I was taught has names and which people fought so bloody hard to uphold the tradition. What should I do to stay honest to the living /and/ dead alike in that case? Just backing off and pretendin' I ain't got a clue wouldn't work, I tried.
Maleco nsala, you gotta work what you have licensia to work. If you are a Tata or Yaya, you work what you’ve learned and honor the muertos the way you’ve learned. You may need to start your own small munanso to enable these teachings to live. If you’re an engeuyo, there is less you can do….but you still work what is inside of you. Just do it in the way spirit requires.
