Did you know that Voodoo dolls were originally created to bring healing and spiritual connection to loved ones? Over time, the Voodoo doll has taken on many different meanings for different groups of people, but the fact remains--these dolls weren't created to bring harm to anyone (despite popular misconception!).
This playful Voodoo Doll is a symbol that we use to remind us of our connection the Earth, to each other, and to ourselves.
WHAT IS VOODOO?
Voodoo is not some form of creepy, dark, witchcraft...although Hollywood movies and fiction books would like you to believe so. Voodoo has no scripture or world authority. It is community-centered and supports individual experience, empowerment and responsibility.*
"Louisiana Voodoo" came about when the Voodoo beliefs of the enslaved population from West Africa begin to merge with French Catholicism. Louisiana Voodoo is often confused with—but is not completely separable from—Haitian Vodou and Deep Southern Hoodoo.
