Born amid the waves that rocked the conquered indigenous Taino people and swept the victims of the slave trade from Africa to Haiti, voodoo is now a vigorous composite that provides the bedrock of resistance of the Haitian people and their courage amid desperate circumstances. It supplies a structural model for different groups of people forced to live together in the country, along with a universal cohesive force for peoples fighting to resist, while reflecting the historical contradictions and conflicts of this social and economic entity.
