Kenaz Filan Guest Post on Ochani Lele's Blog

I recently contributed a guest post to Ocha'ni Lele's blog on Divination and the Yoruba Presence in Haiti and Cuba.  I was proud to be a part of Ocha'ni's blog: he is one of our most interesting writers on topics of Lukumi and Divination.  I was also happy to get a chance to talk about the Yoruba influence on Haitian Vodou and some of the reasons the Yoruba traditions had less impact (or a different impact) on Haitian folk religion than on Cuban practices.  I enjoyed writing this and hope you enjoy reading it too!
