“Lets all wear our whites and wear it well. We will feel at peace with ourselves and victorious over our enemies near and far. Be healed, Be at One.” -Ire, Ase. According to Akan tradition, white is never worn at a funeral because it is a color that symbolizes joy, purity, cleansing and victory. While paying homage to Ancestors, they wrap a special Ancestral stool in white cloth to protect it from negativity. In Voodoo tradition of the Fon kingdom in Benin, white is worn during rituals of healing and cleansing.
