Azaka-Indian Lwa/ Taino and Arawak

Kouzen Zaka is a Lwa of the Djouba nation. Many individuals, mistakenly, think that he is a Rada Lwa. Rather, he is actually a member of the Djouba nation. This nation holds the secrets and mysteries of the Indians, the Tainos and Arawak Indians indigenous to the island.

Djouba is served right after Rada and right before the Nagos.

When we serve djouba, we serve with a tcha tcha rather than an Asson.   This nation is also served with boujis rather than candles.  And this is most appropriate considering the origin of this group of Lwa.
