WHAT IS HOODOO?
Hoodoo is a form of
predominantly African-American folk magic, unlike
Voodoo, which is an African
religion. Hoodoo, also known as
conjure, rootwork, and tricking, is a down
home, old-style form of folk-magic practice
that developed in Southern states like
Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee,
Kentucky, Virginia, Louisiana, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and
Missouri from the joining of a number of
separate cultures and magical paths.
Hoodoo primarily consists of African and
Native American herbalism and sorcery,
into which has been incorporated elements of
wisdom and spell-casting from Scottish,
Irish, English, Jewish, and European
traditions of witchcraft, granny-magic,
shamanism, kitchen-witchery, enchantment,
and occult grimoires. Regional synonyms for
