Ms. Tippet, I thank you very much for doing another segment on Vodou. I was home this weekend listening to NPR when you came on. To open the show you said: "Voodoo, a mix of African religions and Roman Catholicism." That statement is missing a piece because, like many others, you did not mention the attributions of our Indigenous Ancestors. Their contributions to Vodou and the liberation of Haiti is vivid. For example, Veve is not Afrikans but Indigenous to the land; Petro is also Indigenous to the land.
