Twelve Tribes of Israel (Rastafarian Order)


The Twelve Tribes of Israel order of Rastafarianism was founded in 1968 by Dr. Vernon "Prophet Gad" Carrington.

It is the most liberal of the Rastafarian orders and members are free to worship in a church of their choosing. Each member of this sect belongs to one of the 12 Tribes (or Houses), which is determined by birth month and is represented by a color.
