This chapter gives an outline of some of the ideals of moral behavior that inhere in Santería. This outline prevents any misrepresentations of the behavior of the orichas towards the more negative features of character and behavior. The reason for this is that the orichas, along with all the other creations of Olodumare, reflect the coexisting characteristics of good and evil as components of their basic nature.

Keywords:   moral behavior, ideals, Santería, misrepresentations, behavior, orichas, negative features, Olodumare, characteristics, basic nature
