HOW TO GREET YORUBA ELDERS?

At the beginning of our relationship with my husband I had honestly no clue how important it is to greet elders "well". I remember when I first met my husband's grandma I was sweating like a pig ; not that I will remember anything I've been taught to do.

Now after almost three years of marriage I am much better, I am not as frightened and I am comfortable with kneeling down for elderly. I actually really enjoy that I know what to do. And I feel for other white girls who don't.

Anyway, if there is one lesson you need to take from this. PLEASE don't walk up to a Yoruba elder and shake their hand. That is extremely rude and embarrassing.
Make sure you respect your husband's family just as you respect your parents. Trust me it will pay off.
