Of course, Chango and Santa Barbara are two different things. First of all, Chango is male and super-macho at that, while Santa Barbara is female. As with the other Orishas, you can have them without any Catholic Saints anywhere in your home. It just happened that in Cuba, where Catholicism was so predominat in that era, everyone loves Santa Barbara. The important thing in Orisha worship is to receive what we call the "Fundamento" of the Orisha. For most Orishas this consists of receiving the cowrie shells that have been consecrated and the stones that have been consecrated to a particular Orisha. Natually, they have to live in something, so they are placed in tureens and other receptacles to house them. Chango lives in a wooden "batea" The batea is a round wooden bowl that has a top that can be removed. The Orishas also have certain "tools" that are consecrated with them, which they use to work with in performing their "MAGIC".
