BackArrowGreen.png Back to Pantheons

Oral Tradition was a Pantheon in Civilization VI. It granted +1 Culture Culture to all Plantation improvements built on tiles with Bananas Bananas, Citrus Citrus, Cotton Cotton, Dyes Dyes, Silk Silk, Spices Spices, or Sugar Sugar. This Pantheon was removed from Gathering Storm in the June 2019 Update.


Like other luxury resource-dependent pantheons, Oral Tradition is somewhat risky, as they require the presence of these specific resources within your territory. Oral Tradition is most useful for civilizations that are interested in a Culture Victory, as these Plantations will provide a burst of additional Tourism Tourism once Flight is researched. Additionally, these resources will provide faster border growth for newly settled cities without requiring the building of Monuments.
