Vodun Originated in West Africa.


In the West many Vodun Gods are disguised as Catholic saints.


Cool
In what country is Voodoo most practiced in? And does it work it's magic as many people would say?

Haiti practices this and for over three hundred years an independent nation it seems not to be working for the Haitian people. Haiti is still the poorest country in the Americas. There are other variables that have cause the poverty in Haiti but illiteracy and superstition seems to be the main problem
there

Then perhaps the practice of Voodoo has been more of a hindrance to the people's social and economical growth than helping them overcome their hardships, etc. Btw, do most Haitians truly believe that voodoo actually works?

Cant say, when you believe something it is difficult to remove it.

Inside Haiti's Bloody Voodoo Ceremony

There are aspects of that in various Caribbean islands. There are churches in many of the Caribbean islands that practice aspects of traditional African rituals in their church.
