Voodoo dolls, often portrayed in popular culture and movies, are a widely recognized symbol associated with Voodoo, but their portrayal in media can be misleading and sensationalized. In actual Voodoo practice, these dolls, known as “poppets” or “spirit dolls,” are quite different from the way they are often depicted.
Voodoo is a diverse and complex belief system, and the use of dolls is just one small part of it. Additionally, the portrayal of Voodoo in popular media often perpetuates stereotypes and misconceptions. In reality, Voodoo is a legitimate and deeply spiritual tradition practiced by millions of people worldwide, primarily in Haiti and parts of West Africa and the Americas.
