Benin Culture and Traditions

Benin is the birthplace of Vodun (Voodoo) and all that goes with it—to this day Voodun remains the official religion of the country, and an important part of the life of ordinary Beniners. Also there are over fifty different linguistic groups and almost as many ethnicities in Benin. Greetings may differ greatly between them, especially in tribal and rural areas.
