The Yoruba Cultural Institute is a product of sacrifice and commitment to Yoruba and African heritage and reclamation. We are so passionate about keeping our language alive, that we very often volunteer our time and personal resources to keep this effort alive.  It is imperative to us that our children’s children speak impeccable Yoruba and know that they come from an ancient, beautiful, powerful people with a rich heritage. It is also imperative that the African Diaspora reconnect to their home, this is our way of helping them do so.
