This interview is a reblog from my first visit to Haiti in 2007.
One of the first women I spoke to was Voudou Priestess, Madame Evonne Auguste – an amazing beautiful woman with a presence yet warm and purposeful. Madame Auguste is a member of Famm Voudou pou Ayiti (Voudou Women for Ayiti). In the interview she explains that Voudou is both a religion and a philosophy and speaks about the relationship between voudou and liberation theology. She also discusses the some of the reasons behind the demonetisation of the religion and why Famm Voudou pou Ayiti want to establish their own school.
