We will continue the countdown to Niagara’s Summer Mardi Gras with this interactive, livestreamed presentation by our special guest host, Witchdoctor Utu who will be sharing his knowledge and experience with New Orleans’ cultural and voodoo history.

Witchdoctor Utu is an author, the founder of the Dragon Ritual Drummers, the Niagara Voodoo Shrine, and is a member of the New Orleans Voodoo Spiritual Temple. For the last eighteen years he has been immersed in the rootwork, conjure, and mysticism surrounding the lore and legacy of the Underground Railroad. Living in St. Catharines Ontario, where Harriet โ€œMama Mosesโ€ Tubman brought her โ€œtrackโ€ to its end, he has been upfront and integral over the last decade by continuing to uplift and elevate the spirit of Mama Moses and her surrounding spiritual court.
Utu has also been passionately teaching animal magic through lectures, rituals, and curio methods for ten years. He travels extensively in both Canada and the United States to teach, lecture, and facilitate rituals at some of the largest spiritual gatherings on the continent.
