An exploration of all things magical and mysterious in the worlds of Voodoo, Hoodoo, Santeria, Vodou, Obeah, and other Afro-Caribbean religions by Lilith…
Ogun’s machete is his most powerful tool. Forged in fire it is a weapon used in many ways. For those unaware Ogun is a divinity revered in many of the African Traditional Religions. In Haiti he is known as Ogou. Here he is known to have been an instrumental force guiding those who were responsible for the Haitian revolution and the country’s subsequent independence. La Regla Lucumi, more commonly known as Santeria, honors this energy as an Orisha who focuses his energy on iron and the forge.
