Introduction

La Source Ancienne Ounfo is a private Vodou society that exists within the home of New Orleans Voodoo Manbo Sallie Ann Glassman. It's main purpose is to serve the Lwa of Vodou traditions and the New Orleans community. The Society has hosted ceremonies every week for 25 years.

History

Manbo Sallie Ann Glassman has practiced Vodou since 1977. She was ordained/intitiated as a Manbo (Priestess) in 1995 in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti by Oungan Edgar Jean Louis and continues his lineage in the United States. Shortly after her initiation, Manbo Sallie Ann founded La Source Ancienne Ounfo in New Orleans, and her house has served the Lwas under her guidance since that time.

La Source Ancienne Ounfo rituals are held weekly, and special celebrations and ceremonies are held throughout the year. Weekly meetings once held in the home of Manbo Sallie Ann are now hosted in a newly-dedicated Temple; but some public ceremonies are still sometimes held near the Island of Salvation Botanica in the Bywater district of New Orleans.

A ritual ceremony consists of rhythmic drumming which corresponds to a particular Lwa, or spirit. Prayers are sung in Haitian Kreyol, and sacred symbols (veves) are drawn inviting the presence of the Lwas. Blood sacrifices are performed in Haiti, but are not practiced by Manbo Sallie Ann and her Ounfo. Instead the Manbo offers other sacrifices, such as the Lwa's favorite foods or drinks, offerings symbolic of the Lwa's association with the human condition (iron for Ogou La Flambo, cotton for Manman Brigit) , or candles and representations of the Lwas themselves. During the ceremony the Manbo will call upon a specific Lwa who will sometimes possess a member of the congregation to impart wisdom and blessings. While the Lwa "mounts" the person, others can ask advice about problems and receive blessings from the Lwa. Joyous dancing usually concludes a ritual.

Words from Manbo Sallie Ann

"I wish to encourage each member of the house to come together in order to respond to the world with awe and appreciation. There will be no tolerance for personal power struggles or bids for attention. I cannot repeat often enough that these ceremonies are offerings for the Lwa and not FOR any one person in the Ounfo.

Most Americans are so concerned with whether they are getting enough out of a relationship or out of any experience that they fail to notice how much they have to give or how rich they actually are. In giving to the Lwa, we are able to get past ourselves, our petty egos, and find that we stand for much more than ourselves. We are able to call the Gods, who respond by coming down among us. What more do we need?"

Manbo Sallie Ann Glassman lectures on Vodou at universities and conferences. In New Orleans, La Source Ancienne Ounfo performs annual public ceremonies such as the recent St. John’s Eve headwashing ceremony in honor of New Orleans Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau which is held on Bayou St. John not far from where Laveau herself conducted rituals; the public Hurricane Prevention Ceremony, and celebrations of Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) are other popular yearly rituals celebrated by Manbo Sallie Ann and La Source Ancienne Ounfo.
