Santería
8 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Law and Order SVU and this was an interesting episode. It was important to shed light on modern day child-slavery. However, the portrayal of Santería I found misrepresenting. In the episode Santería is said to be from Nigeria, as well as all of its followers. That is not accurate. Santería is a religion that originated in the Caribbean - more specifically Cuba - where Yoruba traditions were combined with Catholicism. While Yoruba people are found in Nigeria, Santería did not originate in Nigeria. It is an Afro-Cuban religion practiced by numerous Cubans and Cuban Americans. As a Law and Order fan I was disappointed in the ignorance and clear lack of research when producing and writing this episode.
