Shared West African Mythology refers to myths found across the region of West Africa. Some of these myths traveled across the Atlantic during the period of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade to become part of Caribbean, Cuban and Brazilian mythology, with some endemic changes.
Features of West African mythology include:
- Mami Wata or Water Spirits
- Ancestral spirits (This falls into religion and/or reincarnation belief systems as much as myth)
