Hoodoo & Conjure Magazine is the first periodical to focus on New Orleans Voodoo and hoodoo and related Southern conjure traditions and folklore. The mission of Hoodoo and Conjure Magazine is to document New Orleans Voodoo, Hoodoo and conjure traditions in the 21st century, to advance the public understanding of said traditions, and to function as a resource for scholars and students exploring the religious, spiritual, and magical traditions with roots in the African Diaspora and Native American cultures.
Hoodoo & Conjure Magazine shares historical and contemporary information about a variety of Southern magical and spiritual traditions with their roots in the African Diaspora and Native American cultures. Each issue of Hoodoo & Conjure Magazine brings you original and traditional formulas, spells, tutorials, conjure artist profiles, information about New Orleans Voodoo, Hoodoo, Louisiana folklore and more!
Whether you are a beginner who is intrigued by the notion of Southern folk magic, an experienced rootworker who wants to pick up some techniques for your trick bag, a student or scholar who seeks information about the African-derived and indigenous spiritual traditions, or you want to keep up with the social world of today’s online practitioners, Hoodoo & Conjure Magazine delivers!
The content of Hoodoo & Conjure Magazine comes from a variety of channels. There is an admixture of contributors that includes several notable authors, as well as “regular folks” from the hoodoo and conjure community. The intentional input of professionals and experienced lay people guarantees the reader receives a wonderful intersection – a crossroads, if you will – of authentic perspectives and practices.
While the focus of HCM is to highlight the religious, spiritual and conjure traditions of my hometown New Orleans, it also explores various influences on these traditions. For example, we include articles about Solomonic mysticism and Catholicism because of the impact these traditions have had on New Orleans traditions as a result of historical factors, cultural adaptation and Creolization.
