Main article: Serer creation myth

Linked to Serer mythology and religion and deemed one of the Serer holy sites , Yaboyabo
Yaboyabo
is one of the oldest villages in Senegal. According to the Serer creation myth , Yaboyabo
Yaboyabo
takes its name from the first human couple (YAAB and YOP , var : YAAB and YOB) created by the supreme being Roog
Roog
(or Koox
Koox
among the Cangin ). The narrative went on to state that, the original twins (female and male respectively) were carried from the Empyrean Heaven by an ark. This is believed to be deposited in the sacred village of Yaboyabo. Although the ark of Yaabo-Yabo is an ancient relic under the guardianship of this Serer village, and ritually venerated by those who adhere to the tenets of Serer religion
Serer religion
, it is highly unlikely to be the original "ark" and was probably an ancient replica. Many Serer homes have ancient artifacts, some of which are religious in nature (see Serer ancient history
Serer ancient history
).

The population is overrun by the Serer people , the original inhabitants. As of 2012, the population is estimated to be between 1715 and 1953.
