Vodou is the name given to a number of religions based in North and South America and the Caribbean. They are syncretic religions which add Native American and Christian beliefs into the West African Vodon religions, and came into being as a result of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Notable Vodou religions include Haitian Vodou; Louisiana Voodoo; Cuban and Dominican Vudú, which are distinct though commonly conflated. The practices of the Sonido de Tortuga islanders have also been associated with the above.[1]

Zombiism Edit

Zombiism is one of the most well-known aspects of Haitian Vodou, where a witch (known as a "bokor" in Haitian Vodou) is said to re-animate bodies of the recently-deceased to use as slave labour. It was this belief which inspired the early Zombie horror films of the mid-20th century, which in turn led to the name "zombie" being used to describe human victims of the t-Virus.[1]
