Description

Louisiana Voodoo - also known as New Orleans Voodoo - is just one of the many incarnations of religions from the African diaspora. It developed within many populations (French, Spanish, African), who combined it with Catholicism and other practices found in Louisiana during the slave trade. It's often confused with Haitian Voodoo or Santeria, but practitioners of New Orleans Voodoo believe in one supreme god, followed by spirits who rule over family, love, happiness and more.
