Roxanne was a young girl, living off the Florida coast. She was told a story of Yemaya and a small prayer in Spanish to say before entering the ocean waters so that Yemaya would protect her . The folklore is a mixture to Cuban and Ancient African beliefs. Yemaya is believed to be the mother of the seas, a grand goddess and a mermaid by the Haitians. She has many names one is La Sirren and Timbre del Mar which means sounds of the ocean
