The Lwa

The lwa are the ancestral spirits of Haitian Vodou, whom we serve and who serve us in turn.  They each have their own personalities, likes, dislikes, colours, songs, and service.

The lwa of Haitian Vodou are divided into nations, groups of spirits who share similar origins and characteristics.  For more information on these groups, and the spirits who are a part of them, please view the links below.
