______
It is widely acknowledged that the Vodoun religion is largely the result of the importation of Africans mainly from the West African Kingdom of Dahomey, (present day Benin to include Togo). Namely from the Ewe and Fon groups. The Ewe are the major group1 (the Fon, Mina, Adja, are subgroups) who reside primarily in Togo, southern Benin, southeast Ghana, and scattered all throughout West Africa, were brought to America’s shores in the early 1800’s via Louisiana.
___
With them came the Vodou religion which underwent the same religious persecution as the Congo and Yoruba groups, forcing it underground as it had existed until recently. Many priests and priestess [especially those who were prosperous] were murdered and forced off of their lands2. Many born to serve their divinities and ancestors found other discreet ways to manifest their spirits. Many out of fear simply “forgot,”-triggering future generations on their own ancestral quest to seek out its spiritual source.
