New Orleans Ju Ju Doll
Ju Ju dolls are commonly sought for their good luck and protection properties. The term "ju ju" refers to an object, in this case a doll, that has been blessed and functions to keep evil and negativity away. Sometimes Ju Ju dolls are referred to as guardians because they are used to protect the home from negativity.
Ju Ju dolls are usually created as poppets, then adorned with colorful yarn, good luck charms, and gris gris bags filled with magickal items to bring positive blessings to their possessor. Ju Ju dolls can be hung above the doorway in your home to keep away evil and negative energy.
Sometimes, ju ju dolls are made in the form of familiars, such as the black cat, one of the most powerful animals in the New Orleans Voodoo tradition.
The Ju Ju Doll is one of the oldest styles of Voodoo dolls in the history of New Orleans Voodoo. The last elder to make these dolls was in her nineties and she retired about 8 years ago as she was unable to physically continue making them. Sadly, no one in her family was interested in learning the craft so this fabulous and important piece of Louisiana Voodoo folk art almost stopped with her.
