Dabassah Guyo

Dabassah Guyo

Oromo spiritual elder Abba Liban Dabassah Guyo is a keeper of the oral histories of the Oromo/Borana people of East Africa.

As a highly respected seer and mystic among his own people, and as the inheritor of a family lineage that preserves the Oromo’s knowledge, he is frequently sought out for ceremony and counsel, both at home and abroad. Originally from Ethiopia, Dabassah established a school in Kenya to preserve Oromo wisdom and tradition.

He continues this work in North America with the Oromo communities living here.
