    Re: Ifa

    If is a concept from the Yoruba people of West Africa and is a system of divination -- specifically in this case, divining what the gods have to say about the future. An "If priest" is thus a priest who practices the art of If, and is usually known as "Babalawo", which means "father of secrets".
