Wezolo (Greetings)!

 

There is a new page up-date to the Mami Wata website that we thought you might enjoy.  Most in the Diaspora do not know that many African traditional religions were originally matriarchal.  In celebration of that, A Photo Journey of Mama Zogbe: http://www.mamiwata.com/lineage1.html A True Lineage Vodoun House in the Diaspora

Voodoo is a word from the Fon or Ewe language which the media has given a negative connotation because as usual its roots are found in Africa. The Druids of Europe and the Shamans of Russia is the exact same thing in another language. Voodoo is the calling on ancient ancestors for guidance and power, and is a very wide spread practice amongst African tribes.  the Yoruba and people of Voodoo beliefs hold that the forces came from beyond the stars. They are called Ginwins, Shushukiy and Umarway by the Yoruba. They are known by the Native Americans as Thunder Birds. The Hopi Indians call them Kachina. The Dogon tribe of Africa call them Nummos. The Sumerians call them Anunnaqi.
All people the world over acknowledge superior beings or a being who has come to this Earth many, many thousands of years ago, with the ability to travel from either dimension to dimensions or place to places.
