Yewa Orisha: is the preferred child of Olofi. She was the last virgin living in the castle of Olofi. She maintained the garden where Olofi had all of his beautiful and rare flowers. Yewa is represented by beauty and grace as she was the favorite flower of Olofi. Yewa is associated with death or the final resting place when someone is laid to rest. She is the orisha that watched the decay of the cadaver while in the hole. She entrusts the body of the cadaver back to the earth with the aide of her messengers, the maggets. She lives inside the cemetery with the Obba, Oya and Oduduwa. It is said that Yewa walks the entire cemetery and watches all and every tombstone that is present making record of it. She walks slowly and gracefully making sure she does not miss one tomb.
