IPTC INFO
CaptionBesides Benin African Vodun and its descendant practices may be found in the Togo Ghana Dominican Republic Puerto Rico Cuba Brazil Haiti and Cape Verde. In the Americas it has found fusion with Catholicism. On the individual's household level a Vodouisant or "sèvitè"/"serviteur" may have one or more tables set out for their ancestors and the spirit or spirits that they serve with pictures or statues of the spirits perfumes foods and other things favored by their spirits. The most basic set up is just a white candle and a clear glass of water and perhaps flowers. On a particular spirit's day one lights a candle and says an Our Father and Hail Mary salutes Papa Legba and asks him to open the gate and then one salutes and speaks to the particular spirit like an elder family member. Ancestors are approached directly without the mediating of Papa Legba since they are said to be "in the blood".
