To learn more about Haitian Vodou

We had a packed meeting room last Sunday! It was great to see. We learned something about Haitian Vodou and asked a lot of questions, but still just scratched the surface of this complex religion and philosophy of life. Our vodouisant guest speakers recommend the following two books to learn more about their faith:

  • Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti, by Maya Deren (Amazon.com link)
  • Mama Lola: A Vodou Priestess in Brooklyn, by Karen McCarthy Brown (Amazon.com link)

They are also very open to questions and can be reached via e-mail:

  • Adam McGee: amcgee {at} fas {dot} harvard {dot} edu
  • Manbo Maud Evans: mmevans70 {at} yahoo {dot} com
