Voodoo Dolls, Potions, Magic Spells...what are they really? And what actually happens during a Voodoo Ritual? Contrary to popular portrayals as evil or harm-inducing, Voodoo is actually a religion, possibly the most misunderstood religion in the world. 

Discover the truth behind the practice as Rory O’Neill Schmitt and Rosary O’Neill (author of New Orleans Carnival Krewes: The History, Spirit & Secrets of Mardi Gras) take you through the very beginnings of Voodoo in New Orleans with the enslaved Africans and how over time, their practice combined with that of the Free People of Color who moved to New Orleans from Haiti in the late 1700s. From the public dances of Congo Square to the secret rituals of St. John’s Eve, learn more about the famous Voodoo Priestess, Marie Laveau, and how her legacy continues in New Orleans today. You’ll even uncover a direct link from the most devout Voodooists to Catholicism!
