This site provides information for hoodoo, conjure, and other American folk beliefs. Most of the focus is on the African-American practices of hoodoo, voodoo, and rootwork. Eventually I'll add some spells and such, but for now, I have some group info that I participate in, a way to get you some hoodoo books, and I can also make you a mojo bag for your personal needs.
For discussion of hoodoo, spells, charms, and other information and related topics, join one or all of these Yahoo groups:
Let me know what you need, I may be able to help. I have access to supplies and techniques, and if I can't help you, I'll try to refer you to someone who can. Just send an email to
with your needs. I'll let you know if I can do it, and other details. Note: this is custom work for you. I don't have any box of generic mojo bags to reach into, pull one out, and send you. I'll go get the supplies, herbs, oils, roots, etc. only AFTER we decide what YOU need.

Voodoo in New Orleans Robert Tallant's 1946 book that's got some interesting stories usually told from a Hollywood attitude about Voodoo. One of the few books specifically about New Orleans "Voodoo".
The Voodoo Queen is Robert Tallant's novel based on the life of Marie Laveau. It's based on facts and legend and is pretty entertaining.
