Cuban Vodú

Cuban Vodú, also known as La Regla de Arará,[1] is a syncretic religion of Caribbean origin which developed in the Spanish Empire.[2] Cuban Vodú is composed of three divisions: the Indigenous American Division, whose spirits are of American origin (usually refers to Taíno spirits); the African Division, whose spirits are of African origin (usually Fon and Ewe spirits); and the European Division, whose spirits are of European origin (usually Spanish spirits).[3]
