St. John’s Eve 2011

St. John’s Eve 2011

Thursday, June 23rd, 7 pm:  Sallie Ann Glassman and La Source Ancienne Ounfo celebrate St. John’s Eve with their annual ceremony on the footbridge over Bayou St. John (near Cabrini High School).

Headwashing Ceremony (form of Vodou baptism) dedicated to Marie Laveau

Wear all white and bring a white scarf or rag for your head (It will get dirty.)

 

Bring an offering for Marie Laveau.  She likes flowers, blue and white candles, Creole foods, hair ribbons and hair dressing supplies (She was a hairdresser.), Vodou-esque items (Voodoo dolls, potions, gris-gris bags, etc.), or images of Marie Laveau.

 

For more info, call Island of Salvation Botanica: (504) 948-9961.

If you are visiting New Orleans in the hazy month of June, do not miss this opportunity to experience this authentic voodoo ritual hosted by one of the most powerful practitioners of the religion in the South!

Calling the Spirit to the Bayou St. John Cerimony Voodoo ritual.

 

Marie Laveau Headwashing Ceremony Commemorating the time of year most preferred by Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau for her workings, this ceremony takes place on June 23rd, traditionally St. John’s Eve and an important date in many cultures. During her lifetime Mambo Marie Laveau hosted her voodoo “bamboulas” to coincide with this date; these always took place along the waterway known as Bayou St. John in New Orleans. To honor both the tradition and the great Voodoo Queen herself, Mambo Sallie Ann Glassman and La Source Ancienne Ounfo host a midsummer headwashing ritual each year on the same waterway favored by Marie Laveau.

Manbo Sallie Ann Glassman Begins the Marie Laveau Ritual on Bayou Saint John.

 

This ritual, performed for the benefit of devotees and members of the public alike, is a celebration of the season of fullness and plenty. As with other rituals, Marie Laveau, honored as a powerful ancestral Lwa in her own right, is invoked by the Mambo to join in the festivities. A ritual headwashing takes place and all are invited to share in the powerful “ashe” or energy that is invoked from the presence of Marie Laveau and that is passed, through the Mambo, to each devotee. Hypnotic ritual drumming accompanies the ritual and after headwashing is complete devotees dance long into the sapphire night. Offerings for Marie Laveau are appropriate and these include white candles, white scented flowers, hair dressing items such as combs, brushes, ribbons and clips (Marie Laveau was a hairdresser by trade), foods such as fried pork and coconut cake, cigars, Florida Water, and, of course, rum. Mambo Sallie Ann repeats her waterside ritual in the lobby of the International House Hotel in New Orleans each June 24th, St. John’s Day.

New Orleans Mardi Gras Voodoo Hoodoo

Opinions can differ about Voodoo and Hoodoo but basically, Voodoo can be defined as an organized religion combining elements of African Vodun and Roman Catholicism. Hoodoo on the other hand is folkloric magic comprised of handed-down traditions practiced primarily in Louisiana, sometimes referred to as 'New Orleans- own brand or Mardi Gras styled' Voodoo.

Baron Samedi:

King of The Voodoo Ghosts

Baron Samedi: The Great Voodoo Hoodoo  Baron Samedi (Baron Saturday, also Baron Samdi, Bawon Samedi, or Bawon Sanmdi) is one of the loa of Haitian Vodou. Samedi is a loa of the dead, along with Baron's numerous other incarnations Baron Cimetière, Baron La Croix, and Baron Kriminel. He is usually depicted with a white top hat, black tuxedo, dark glasses, and cotton plugs in the nostrils, as if to resemble a corpse dressed and prepared for burial in the Haitian style. He has a white, frequently skull-like face (or actually has a skull for a face) and speaks in a nasal voice. He is the head of the Guédé family of Loa, or an aspect of them, or possibly their spiritual father. His wife is the loa Maman Brigitte. 'Samedi' means 'Saturday' in French, though there are alternate etymologies offered.

Voodoo Cemetery Gates Of Guinee

 

One old tradition still observed in New Orleans today was to search for Secret Voodoo Cemetery Gates Of Guinee, The Mysterious Portal To The Afterworld. Bringing something as an offering, (a piece of King Cake, Mardi Gras Beads etc.). The dead love sweets and gifts, and even more so they love King Cake in New Orleans. In Voodoo, the soul continues to live on earth and may be used in magic or it may be incarnated in a member of the dead person's family. This belief is similar to Catholicism in that the soul is believed to be immortal. Elaborate burial customs have been established to keep the dead buried in the ground. It is believed that corpses, or a persons spirit bottle* that have been removed from their tombs may be turned into zombies, who then serve the will of their masters.
