African/Diaspora religions are some of the fastest growing spiritual traditions in the West. New generations are born literally being called back to finish the work began by their enslaved and distant African ancestors and deities. The constant dilemma of having to rely upon outdated, patronizing anthropology texts, and” New Age” western spiritual literature, supported by sensationalist Hollywood stereotypes, is problematic at best. This brief introduction will aid in dispelling many misconceptions about the origins of the Vodoun religion from which the African-American Diaspora descend. Previously published in "Mami Wata: Africa's Ancient God/dess Unveiled," this
book is good primer for those wanting a solid foundation on Vodoun's origins.
