Inspired by the religion and mythology of the Yoruba people of west-central Africa, the Tarot of the Orishas features "saints" or supernatural beings referred to as "orixas" (or orishas). The major arcana has 25 cards; the four suits of the minor arcana do not feature court cards, making for 77 cards in all. Sort of "barely tarot", but with some nice parallels that should suffice to provide insights into the Yoruban culture.
