VOODOU MYTHOLOGY

The Voodoo Spirits of Haiti & the Caribbean

ERZULIE

Caribbean Love Goddess

Also known as ENZILI

Goddess of Love, Romance, Beauty and Womanhood

The feminist LOA who displays every aspect of femininity that could or would be expected, with suitable titles so that you know what mood she is in.

She’s ERZULIE-FREYDA, ERZULIE-DANTOR and ERZULIE-GE-ROUGE. Then there is ERZULIE-TOHO, and ERZULIE-MAPIANGUEH — and she also stands in for the Virgin Mary, although not we imagine in the Meek and Mild way.

She can also be LA-SIRENE which we have put under separate heading. There are sure to be others but this should be enough to start you off.
