" Truth, Honor and Respect of the Night Watch" -----
"As death awakens so do I"
" The spiritual paths is only obtained by Knowledge"
Quoted : by Bawon Samedi, Simiyte, Lakwa, Limbo,
Krimmel and Brav
|Vodoun is an ancient tradition that
transcends race, class and gender. All
whom the deities calls or who needs
their powerful force in their lives are
welcome. Haiti is not where the Vodoun
religion was born, nor is it where it
reached its highest pinnacle of
philosophical, ritual and theological
development. The Vodoun religion is
estimated to have existed for more than
10,000+ years, having its ancient roots
in Egypt, East Africa, Asia Minor
(ancient Turkey), Syria, and in ancient
Afro-matrilineal Ionia later known as
Greece" where the African, Queen mothers
established their powerful theocratic
empires. At its height, these African,
matriarchal empires reigned for more
than 4,000 years. Within the past decade
the Vodoun religion has experienced a
powerful revival in the world. As a
result, there is a growing demand for a
more accurate portrayal of this powerful
Vodou exists in different forms and
variations. It is practiced throughout
the Haiti, Caribbean, Africa, Brazil,
Argentina, Venezuela, Columbia, Mexico,
U.S. and many other countries in Latin
America. Whether it is referred to as
Haitian, Palo, Obeah, Santeria, Regla de
Ocha, Umbada, Lukumi, Quimbanda,
Candomble, La Regla Lucum or Orisha, it
is still Vodou.
The capitalization of the Europeans
tradition and morality, the
cinema-graphics industry of Hollywood
and the lust of profit from early slave
trade to modern day movies has provided
a grave misconception that Vodou implies
all black African religions and
practices are associated with black
magic, sorcery and witchcraft. To add
insult to injury the "Encyclopedia of
Religion and Ethics" by James Hastings
(page640 v . XII) adds: "Voodoo is devil
- worship and fetishism brought from the
Gold Coast of Africa..... Its chief
sacrifice is a girl child, referred to
by the initiates as " the goat without
horns" When a child is not available, a
white kid (goat) takes its place.
excepting at the great semi - annual
festival when the "goat" is drugged,
killed and eaten, black dogs, cocks and
hen are cruelly sacrificed by being
slashed so that their bowels fall out.
There is a regular priesthood to
intimidate and rob the devotees....."
With this ignorant prejudices the term
Voodoo (Vodou) has haunted and horrified
our society with disgust, prejudice and
imagery of devil worship. Vodou is
feared because it is not well understood
and remains a mystery to scholars; so it
therefore must be bad according to
Voodoo spelled Vodou prefix "vo" means
"introspection" and the suffix dou or do
means "into the unknown". Also its other
meaning, Vodou is a way of life, the Fon
meaning "Spirit". Vodou is "Ancestor
Worship" respecting the Elders and the
Ancestors, religion healing, education
and respect for everything that exists
in the universe.
Our Society is enriched with the
religious cultures brought to America
from Africa, Cuba, Haiti, Brazil,
Dominican Republic and New Orleans.

Come join us and learn the secret
teachings of the oldest traditions known
Over the last 45 years I have had so
many people say my teachers will not
share all thier knowledge with me or
have held me back from learning or even
it's not time yet. This must be the
under statement of the year!
The objective of any teacher is to share
all spiritual knowledge with the
students so they may grow and carry on
the tradition. We believe in sharing
every bit of our knowledge with each
student in hopes that they will continue
to teach the truth, tradition and wisdom
of our Ancestors the true meaning of
"Half education is more dangerous than
This is not a chat room or social club!
But for serious people who want Vodou to
play a greater part in their lives.
"The World of Darkness is a world of
cold, thoughtless, time that is reality,
not because of it's darkness, but
because of the shadows cast by the
people who are suppose to be light!
Those chosen to travel it's timeless

by choice but by destiny and The Grace
