Voodoo is a name associated with various religions, and it is falsely associated with zombies and black magic. Though precursors and similar contemporary religions are in central and western Africa, what is called "Voodoo" or "Hoodoo" in Louisiana or "Vodou" in Haiti was created in the Americas. In addition to falsely equating "Voodoo" with Santería and other Black diasporic religions in the Americas, Voodoo has been confused with the occult, satanism, witchcraft, taoism, hexcraft, and the black art of bilocation.
