  4. 2021 Speaker Series: Vodou and the Use of Caves as Sacred Space in Modern Haiti

    October 21, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    @
    Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum (JPPM)

    Location is the Park Pavilion - Speaker: Patrick Wilkinson, Ph.D. Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Vodou is intrinsic to both Haitian history and identity. It is practiced by an overwhelming majority of the people in the country and in the global Haitian diaspora. Due to this pervasive misunderstanding, little recognition of the nuances of the modern practice of Vodou exists. This statement resonates particularly strongly with regard to the less public locations which serve as pilgrimage sites and in which Vodou is practiced across Haiti, such as waterfalls, caves, and other difficult-to-access spaces. In this presentation, Patrick will describe in detail the performance of an initiation ceremony that occurred in a cave outside of Cap Haitien at Fort Picolet in Northern Haiti, including the introduction to the mambo in her home, the trek out to Gwòt Klemzine, entrance into the cave, and the Mèt Tèt, (Master of the Head,) ceremony itself.
