This little-understood belief system is among the truest religions of the Americas—yet its essence has remained a mystery to outsiders.Written by a practitioner of the highest initiatory rank, Haitian Vodou is the only book that offers a respectful, first-hand overview of the centuries-old indigenous tradition. From Haiti’s culture and history to the sacred beliefs, ceremonies, rituals, and practices grounded in ancestral communion, readers will get a rare look inside Haitian Vodou. Also explored: its relationship to other African diasporic traditions in the West- common misconceptions- Vodou magic and initiations- how millions survived slavery, betrayal, and revolution- and the twentyone nations of the Lwa, the spirits of Haitian Vodou.
