What is Hoodoo? A traditional form of folk magic, the term Hoodoo can have different meanings, depending on who is using it and what their practice includes. In general, Hoodoo refers to a form of folk magic and rootwork that evolved from African practices and beliefs. In the United States, it has often been diluted to include some Native American botanical knowledge as well as European folklore. This mishmash of practices and beliefs combines to form contemporary Hoodoo.

Although many followers of modern Hoodoo practices are African-American, many non-black practitioners are out there as well. However, the tradition’s roots are typically found in the folkloric practice of Central and West Africa, and were brought to the United States during the time of the slave trade. These magical systems are sometimes called Hoodoo, but are also called conjure or rootwork, depending on the practitioner.

Many Hoodoo spells are related to love and lustmoney and gambling, and other practical applications. There is also, in some forms of Hoodoo, a veneration of the ancestors. However, it’s important to note that despite the use of magic and ancestor worship, Hoodoo is not a Pagan tradition at all–many practitioners are in fact Christian, and some even use the Psalms as a basis for magic.
