Just as certain powders have significance and power in African religions, so too do they play an important role in working the roots. Rootworkers discovered how to use all sorts of natural materials in powdered form from herbs and roots and mushrooms to metals to animal bones. These different types of powder and dust have been used for centuries to bring luck or protection, to make mojos and hands, and to cross somebody through their footprints.

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.
