9780940984608: Voodoo: Past and Present

University of Southwestern Louisiana [No. 5, Louisiana Life Series] [Published date: 1990.] Contents include: Introduction, Historical Background; notes; Newspaper Accounts of Voodoo in Louisiana; A Visit with Voodoo Priestess Ava Kay jones; A Hoodoo Find; Glossary; Bibliography. Some black and white illustrations. [Excerpt from introduction] We do not necessarily understand the term Voodoo or the religion it denotes, but then some things are too frightening to face - or so we may think before we actually face the feared object and exorcise its power by coming to terms with it - dissecting it, understanding it, making sense of it. This journey into Louisiana Voodoo will introduce the beliefs African religious roots, the factors shaping it in the New World, news accounts of the practice seen in print since the 1840s, and will discuss many, and interview two, of Voodoo's colorful practitioners. A survey, this work seeks to familiarize the reader with the history of Voodoo and will shed new light on the rural Hoodoo of South Louisiana.
