When we think of voodoo, we tend to think about creepy dolls, scary spells and sacrifices. But there’s a lot more to it.
For Haitians, this religion is a way of life. It’s been part of Haiti’s tradition since it was a slave colony, and it’s been passed down from generation to generation. Vodouisants, as they are called, believe they are connected to their ancestors and look to voodoo in times of trouble.
“We can do everything, we can have your husband or wife come back to you.” says voodoo priest Anis. ” Whatever people want, we can do.”
So, when we got invited to an initiation ceremony in Haiti, we couldn’t say no. Fusion’s Mariana Atencio shows us what voodoo is all about.
