  • Practitioners profess belief in a supreme God but give more attention to a large number of spirits called the loa, which can be identified as local or African gods, deified ancestors, or Catholic saints.

The spelling of Voodoo typically indicates the region of reference. Voodoo is West African, now common to the U.S.

Voudou is the French spelling more common in Haiti

The word voodoo means "spirit of God."

Fact #2

Hoodoo

practitioners work with both hands - for good and evil. The root doctors, as they are called in Louisiana, and the bokors as they are called in Haiti, are also healers. Hoodoo is not Voodoo.
