Santeria is considered a voodoo
In the everyday life of Haitians, Voodoo offers above all help in life, healing and orientation in the chaos of social and political upheavals. The believers repeatedly adapt their religious cosmos to external influences.
introductionHaiti is not calm. Since independence from France in 1804 and the United States in 1934, the once rich colony has bled to death into one of the poorest countries in the western world. The infrastructure is underdeveloped, and many residents have to survive on less than two dollars a day. Unemployment is overwhelming. Those who can emigrate. After colonial rule, natural disasters and dictatorial governments, the economy of the Caribbean island was down again after the earthquake in January 2010. Hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives and millions lost their homes. Baptist pastors who came to the country as part of the reconstruction aid blamed the voodoo supporters for the recent disaster.  In February 2010, there were also violent attacks on gatherings of voodoo supporters in one of the slums of Port-au-Prince. The struggle against the popular belief that is widespread in Haiti brings back memories of the French colonial rulers who tried to transfer their Catholic religion to the African slaves by force. But Voodoo is now a recognized state religion alongside Catholicism and is practiced by the majority of the population, often parallel to the Catholic faith. What are the elements of voodoo and what role does this African American belief play for Haitians?
