The paper provides details of the history, migration to the new world, principles, rituals, and key figures surrounding Voodoo, proving Voodoo to be a legitimate form of religious practice. This paper provides a thorough description of people, such as Marie Laveau, who brought Voodoo to new heights in America.

From the Paper:

"Evil witchdoctors, devil worship, and flesh-eating zombies are merely three common misconceptions of ignorant America with regards to Voodoo. Voodoo, meaning "spirit", is a derivative of the world's most ancient religions practiced on the continent of Africa for over ten thousand years. This religion predates the majority of those practiced in present day America. Through out time there have been several attempts to ignore and eliminate this religious practice, for it was and has been frowned upon from the moment it was transplanted in the New World. The strength followers have received from Voodoo has made it possible for this faith to survive persecution."
