Voodoo (also spelled Vodun, Vodon, Vodoun, Vodou, Voudou) indicates a series of similar and interrelated religions originating in West Africa and spread into Central America and southern U.S., along with the Atlantic slave trade.
Voodoo is a sincretic religion, combining the world creators of both original religions, and the system of spirits originating in West Africa with the Catholic hierarchy of angels and saints in entities called Loa. Worship, including to ancestors, is often mediated by high rank initiates, if not full priests, under the name of Houngan and Mambo.
