New Orleans Voodoo is a hybrid voodoo, reflective of the eclectic culture that is uniquely New Orleans. The history of voodoo in New Orleans dates back two Centuries, to a time when West African slaves arrived in New Orleans, bringing with them the ancient religion that originated some 7,000 years ago.

The word voodoo means “spirit" or "mystery." Voodoo believers accept the existence of one god, below which are the powerful spirits often referred to as Loa. These powerful spirits are responsible for the daily matters in life in the areas of family, love, money, happiness, wealth, and revenge.

If New Orleans had an icon for it's brand of Voodoo, it would bear the image of Marie Laveau. Marie Laveau is somewhat of a poster child for the mixed races that emerge from New Orleans as she is said to have been a free person of color and part Choctaw. Mam'zelle Laveau was born to a wealthy French planter Charles Laveau, and a mother who may have been a mulatto slave, a Caribbean Voodoo practitioner, or a quadroon mistress.
