How did santeria reinvent the orisha?
The word "Santeria" is in reference to Catholic Saints, which are not associated with the Orisha in West Africa. Yangi stone was not available in the new world, so Eshu started being made out of cement filled with items; the praise name Elegbarra became "Elleggua" in Santeria. The river Orisha Yemoja (which means "Mother of the Fishes") became Yemaya, Orisha of all the surface of the ocean. Oshun became Orisha of all the rivers. Both Irunmole and Orisha were called Orisha. There are many other ways as well.

Asked in Sikhism
What is the title of a Sikh religious leader?
Sikhs don't have any religious leader nor do they have any priestly class for performing religious functions.At their place of worship which is Gurudwara, there is usually a person who act as more of a care taker than being a religious leader. That person is usually called Granthi or Bhaji. Sikhs do have what they call Akal Takhat where they do make religious decision. The head of Akal Takhat is called Jethadar. But its more of an organisation where people make decision after discussion and sometimes even arguments. But as such there is no religious leader.
