VODOU IS A MUST-DO!
If you’re visiting the Capital in the coming months, don’t miss the Canadian Museum of Civilization’s fascinating look at the complex spiritual traditions, beliefs and practices of Haitian vodou. Vodou features over 300 objects from the Marianne Lehmann collection, recognized as the world’s most important collection of objects related to Vodou. But don’t come expecting to see the popular images of Vodou manufactured by Hollywood–this exhibition presents authentic and comprehensive insights into the history and continuing impact of Vodou practices in daily life, with explanations provided by practicing Vodouists. The exhibition continues at the Museum until early 2014.
