Overview

Designed to educate readers of the rich history and functionality of the art of hoodoo/conjure as practiced in the low country areas of South Carolina and Georgia, "Low Country Shamanism" will clear up misunderstandings that have historically plagued this unique system of healing and magic. Evidence is presented to demonstrate low country hoodoo/conjure is a legitimate form of shamanism and has been effective as a tool for physical and emotional healing, spiritual development and socio-cultural control.Concentrating on the role of the low country "Conjure Doctor" as a shaman, agent of change, and healer, this work will give the reader, in an accessible style, an overview of the practices of the art of hoodoo/conjure as performed in the low country areas of South Carolina and Georgia. It will examine the shamanic practices of the traditional "root doctors", present techniques and practices for magical workings and for healing, and provide personal narratives from modern day authentic hoodoo/conjure practitioners and those who have been profoundly influenced by the art.
