An Introduction to Haiti's Indigenous Spiritual Tradition

Haitian Vodou is a fascinating spiritual tradition rich with ceremonies and magic, songs and prayers, dances and fellowship. Yet outside of Haiti, next to no one understands this joyous and profound way of life. ln Haitian Vodou, Mambo Chita Tann explores the historical roots and contemporary practices of this unique tradition, including discussions of:

  • Customs, beliefs, sacred spaces, and ritual objects
  • Characteristics and behaviors of the Lwa, the spirits served by Vodou practitioners
  • Common misconceptions such as "voodoo dolls" and the zombie phenomenon
  • Questions and answers for attending ceremonies and getting involved in a sosyete (Vodou house)
  • Correspondence tables, Kreyol glossary, supplemental prayer texts, and an extensive list of reference books and online resources

Well-researched, comprehensive, and engaging, Haitian Vodou will be a welcome addition for people new to Haitian spirituality as well as for students, practitioners, and academics.
