A high percentage of enslaved Africans in the pre-civil war united states were of Congolese origin. They brought a sophisticated system of magic with them to north America, where it merged with European folk magic, Native American, and other African traditions to form a whole new magical system now called Hoodoo. A practitioner of Hoodoo is very closely related t New Orleans Voodoo; the names are sometimes used interchangeably.
Hoodoo is a system of practical magic, not a specific spiritual tradition. Hoodoo practitioners may belong to any or no religion. There are pagan, atheist, and Jewish Hoodoo workers for instance. Some Hoodoo traditions are intensely christian. Many Hoodooers incorporate sacred texts into their practice, especially the book of psalms or the book of job.
According to Plagiarism Checker (http://smallseotools.com/plagiarism-checker/) you have 0% unique content.

If you intend to post on this site, you need to either cite your sources (online or otherwise) when copying and pasting or paraphrasing. Unless you have the knowledge in and of yourself without the addition of any outside assistance, you will be plagiarizing.

Copying and reposting something from a book and not giving the source makes it plagiarism as well. Please do refrain in the future as your actions put this entire site at risk. Future episodes of posting material you did not write without giving the source will result in the post being deleted.
