Susanne Wenger responded to the call of Olodumare a few hours ago. She was quite an amazing woman, deeply attuned to the Yoruba spirit world. My friend Alex and I interviewed her in May 07. I must edit the footage I made and put it on YouTube.
Just got the news on NEXT. Eya.
RIP Adunni Olorisa. I pray we all live as long and as purposeful a life as you were lucky to.
Adunni Olorisa. May her soul rest in perfect peace. I ran a profile on her (http://www.werunthings.net/2008/09/susanne-adunni-olorisa-wenger/) and was so surprised by the number of people (Nigerians), especially at work that asked me who she was.I think it'll be a good idea to put up the video on Youtube. God bless you man.

Hello,The passing of Adunni Olorisa is very sad.In the midst of the onslaught of foreign religions and bizarre manifestations of fundamentalist beliefs - she was one of the few who worked to ensure that some of the core Yoruba animist traditions do not slip into extinction or get unnecessarily labelled as inherently evil.I do hope that the work she has done is protected and maintained as a bastion of part of what makes the Yoruba who they are.May her gentle soul rest in peace.Akin
...I think this is that end I was referring to here!I don't know whether you believe in reicarnation. But something tells me her spirit continues...If I were you I wouldn't put it on youtube just yet. The time is coming when people will be begging for it...
orun ire e. Iya Adunni Olorisa. Osun agbe e o!!
Everyone else has said it: end of an era. Beautiful photograph of her by the way. Your handiwork Jeremy?
