A lot of this people are descends free slaves, that led to the country of origin the new religious custos that learned.

Voodoo history

However, when the slave period began and the african blacks were taken to catholic countries, found themselves under the need to incorporate elements of the dominant religion, so that they would not be punished for their original religious demonstration. For this reason, the voodoo belief has components of catholicism.
Despite the voodoo history have undergone adaptations over time, still being practiced by most of the haitian people and by immigrant citizen in the country.

Palo Mayombe do not must be confused with Santeria religion

Santeria doctrine have origin nigerian and belonging to the Yoruba nation. Its theology and ancestral tradition filled with various rituals, attracts many adherent around the world, even believers who believe that it belongs to the Mayombe. However, Palo Mayombe and Santeria is not the same religion.

Santeria religion


The religion also known as “La Regla de Ocha” and “Lucumi Religion”, it was widespread in Cuba by slaves. They had their spiritual traditions, and, as happened with black Voodoo and Palo Mayombe adherent, the Santeria religion hid their belief dentro the catholic figures belonging to their owners, making the doctrine acquire elements of the dominant religion. Also there are those who not accepted this new reality, and chose to worship their saints “originals”. These slaves were called “way of saints”, by Santeria doctrine.

Santeria saints


When we talk about this religion, we consider as Santeria entities, the saints and orishas. They are considered the main access portal of communication between the human and the transcendental word. Between human and god.
To understand better, is possible to make an referente to holy trinity, characteristic of catholiscim – “on behalf of the father, Son and Holy Spirit” –.
Know some orishas and the saints correspondent, respectively:

  • Exu – Saint Antonio;
  • Ossaim – Saint Roch;
  • Xango – Saint Jerome, Saint Peter, Saint John the Baptist, Saint Joseph and Saint
  • Francis of Assis;
  • Iansa – Saint Barbara;
  • Oxala – Jesus.

Yemaya Santeria


Yemaya Santeria is a female orisha considered one of more importante, dear and respected in this religion. Its origin is of Yourubá doctrine, but also have participation in Santeria, where is considered “queen of the wave”. The name Yemaya comes from the term “Yèyé Omo Ejá”, translate mean “mother of fish children”.
Yemaya Santeria have its name related to the origin of several other deities that make up the religou scene of many african doctrines. On the other hand, being held responsible for the creation of so many orishas, the figure also is linked to fertility and motherhood, besides being reference for those who seek comfort and protection, to fight the problems of life.  Why some people confuse Santeria and Palo Mayombe?
The orgin and basis of religion between Santeria and Palo Mayombe are similar. However, the religions should not be confused. Mayombe is a strand of Palo religion, unlike Santeria; the rites of contact with the spirit world are made of different ways; the Santeria had origin in Nigéria and Palo emerged in Congo. We also need to consider Palo Mayombe more efficient, influential and powerfull in their achievements, when compared to Sanderia and others africans and westerners religions.

Ma Kengue:

The religion of Palo Mayombe involves the worship and ultimate reference of Nzambi, the Supreme Deity who they relate to through the kimpungulu (plural form of mpungu).

However, not everyone has contact with the gods, the priests are in charge of communicating with them and passing on the message.

Voodoo in Mexico: Voodoo is a religion that is characterized by having many symbols; In Mexico, specifically in Mexico City, there is a county where these symbols reside.These express a moral dictionary, representing arbitration and social organization. But, it can be said that Mexico hides this religion, it may not seem ethically correct, just remember, in general, the religion that abounds in Latin America is Catholic so it is normal for it to suppress other entities. So, they do their best to make this religion known, for example, people like Emmanuel Délicieux, try after the earthquake that occurred in Mexico City, publicize this religion by preaching that the earthquake is a way that the universe is talking to us. It also opens the doors to anyone who is interested.

Voodoo in Haití: To talk about the voodoo religion in Haiti, you have to go back in 1791, where the Bois Caiman ceremony took place, in the Haitian Revolution, this ceremony was where the reception of the black pig took place, and served as a meeting to clarify the problems .As this religion has gone around the world, since in places like Africa and France they practice it, Haiti, however, is where it predominates and since 2013 it is one of the official religions. Black magic abounds taking care of health and spirit, because this religion was born from suffering, is a fruit of French colorism and slavery.And although Catholicism still prevails, many Catholic practitioners also invoke the voodoo aspects.

Voodoo in Louisiana: Also known as Voodoo New Orleans, it also has the same origins and similarities between the Voodoo of Mexico and Haiti.The voodoo was in the year 1731, and all groups contributed to its evolution, involving its magic with herbs and dolls, but at one time the police banned the sale of slaves under 14 years.This is how slaves united to achieve the influence of religion and enjoy its benefits.They began making and using charms to protect others was a key aspect for voodoo in Louisiana.

Sacrifices:

Sacrifices are usually offered to him at railroads. His association with railroads is because they are built with extensive use of iron.

Women on their periods are not expected to come anywhere close to his shrine. His colors are green, coral and black and his sacred number is 7.

Shrine:

Besides setting up an nganga, a Palero who aspires to become a Tata (male priest) must set up shrines/ altars for both Sarabanda and Lucero. These male priests are qualified to handle initiation rites. An nganga is built to be inhabited by the spirits of dead ancestors but this shrine is fully dedicated to an mpungu; a deity. It is the pathway that helps worshipers make a journey into another realm. Unlike an nganga, this shrine is made of an iron cauldron; a pot with three legs. This pot must be filled with items that make Sarabanda potent on the earth. Items such as horseshoe, machete. Often times a snake and even grenades. Oaths and initiations are carried out right in front of his shrine.

This cauldron is believed to be a bridge between the spirit world and the physical world as Sarabanda acts as a middle man between Nzambi, the Creator God and mankind. The cauldron is also a medium through which Sarabanda expresses his nature and then fully operates on the earth.
