In this episode, we get to know Witchdoctor Utu, founder of the award-winning and world renowned pagan drum troupe, the Dragon Ritual Drummers, member of the New Orleans Voodoo Spiritual Temple, founder of the Niagara Pagan Men’s Circle and the Niagara Voodoo Shrine, dedicated to Harriet Tubman and the spirits of the Underground Railroad.
For over twenty years, he has been active in the Canadian and American pagan communities where he is a highly sought-after presenter and educator.
Here, we focused on Utu’s book “Conjuring Harriet ‘Mama Moses’ Tubman”, covering the key concepts of this unique practice, as well as some of the rituals, history, and spirits. Utu’s approach is respectful, reverent, and loving and these qualities really came out during the interview.
Finally, we discussed some of the controversy and criticism Utu’s work has been subject to over the last couple of years, how he has dealt with it, and how we, as pagans and occultists, can address such occurrences in a positive manner.
