The Joan Rivers Show - Voodoo (1990)

Don't let this lady fool you. She is practicing hoodoo, a.k.a. rootwork or conjure. It was very common, and actually still is, for people, even black people, to use the term 'voodoo' to refer to hoodoo. I will blog more on this in the future. We know that this woman is a hoodoo woman because she is not venerating or working with the Loa. She is dealing with only the saints. In hoodoo the saints are who they are, meaning they are not masks for an African spirit.
