The Signifying Monkey by Crossroadsghost The Signifying Monkey by Crossroadsghost
The Signifying Monkey is a character of African American Folklore that derives from the trickster figure of Yoruba Mythology, Esu Elegbara this character was transported with Africans to the Americas under the names of Exu, Echu-Elegua, Papa Legba, and Papa Le Bas. Esu and his variants all serve as messengers who Mediated between the gods and men by means of tricks. The Signifying Monkey is distinctly Afro-American but is thought to derive Yoruban Mythology which depicts Echu-Elegua with a monkey at his side. From Wikipedia.
