From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yaboyabo (Serer, variations : Yaabo-Yabo, Yabo Yabo, YABO-YABO or Yabo-Yabo) is an ancient village[1] in the rural community of Séssène (var : Sessene), in the Thies Region of Senegal.[2][3]

History and religious status

Linked to Serer mythology and religion and deemed one of the Serer holy sites, Yaboyabo is one of the oldest villages in Senegal.[1] According to the Serer creation myth, Yaboyabo takes its name from the first human couple[1] (YAAB and YOP,[4] var : YAAB and YOB) created by the supreme being Roog (or Koox among the Cangin).[4] The narrative went on to state that, the original twins (female and male respectively) were carried from the Empyrean Heaven by an ark.[1] This is believed to be deposited in the sacred village of Yaboyabo.[1] Although the ark of Yaabo-Yabo is an ancient relic[5] under the guardianship of this Serer village, and ritually venerated by those who adhere to the tenets of Serer religion,[5] it is highly unlikely to be the original "ark" and was probably an ancient replica. Many Serer homes have ancient artifacts, some of which are religious in nature (see Serer ancient history).[5][6]

Population

The population is overrun by the Serer people, the original inhabitants. As of 2012, the population is estimated to be between 1715[2] and 1953.[7]

Geography

Some of the nearest localities include Tattaguine, Mbefel, Saokom, Sakone, Dom and Diarab.[3][8] The closest major cities include Thies and Kaolack.[8]
