Summary of The Day: The people of New Orleans feared nothing more than the dreaded Voodoo curse! It was the worst of all fates. Evil magic in other parts of the country paled in comparison. It is human nature to fear what we do not understand.
The roots of Voodoo have been traced all the way back to Africa before 1100 AD. Voodoo religion is based on one main supreme deity and several demigods called loas or lwas. The loas are to Voodoo as the Saints are to Catholicism, each serving a specific purpose. It is estimated that by the 1750s, 30,000 slaves a year were being delivered to Haiti, bringing with them the Voodoo religion. The word Voodoo means Gods or Spirits. They believed that these spirits had the ability to enter the worshippers. This was believed to be a valuable experience, warding off illness and misfortune.
New Orleans is stock full of tales of Voodoo practitioners who can transform into animals or cause animals to invade others. Rather than transforming into wolves, the Voodouns generally become cats. One can only assume that much of the legends that have arisen in New Orleans were spawned by fear and superstition.
