Santeria ,A religion that rose from Yoruba doctrine

When it comes to fashion the color white has held sizable symbolism signifying purity, newness, and the spiritual. Santería, the religion that rose from Yoruba doctrine, Roman Catholicism, and the indigenous peoples of the Americas, uses the color to recognize initiates as they work to ascend ranks. From the past pain of enslavement and foreign lands came prayer, and a transatlantic retention turned into something reverentially unique.
