Just as the mojo bag has many names – hand, conjure pack, toby, package, etc. – there are also so many different ways of making one. A hand can be as simple as a single ingredient wrapped in cloth to as complex as numerous ingredients such as dirt from a specific type of grave and even certain plant materials that were harvested at specific times.

Even once you’ve gathered everything you need to make your hand, it’s not an easy technique to bring it to life. To see some basic tutorials that help you get started with exploring how to make and use your own hands in different ways click here.

Why is this content protected?

The internet has become an incredible platform for sharing about rootwork and helping our community connect with each other to reclaim our heritage in these traditions. Unfortunately, publicly posting also opens up a whole world of possibilities for cultural appropriation, spreading misinformation, and other issues…

For all these reasons, the Library is only accessible to those who have an approved Library account in order to keep all the content in the hands of those who truly can practice hoodoo. Only people of African descent have the ancestral link to rootworking traditions that is necessary to practice them.
