While many witches and Pagans will now readily admit our current practices are a hodgepodge of things borrowed, repurposed, or outright stolen from other practices, not enough credit is given to the contributions of Africa and its diaspora. Many of our modern magics come, either outright from Africa and the countries contained within, or from the people who were enslaved and had to adapt and hide the practices from their homelands. Indeed, the bulk of metaphysical shops likely do their main trade with respect to these practices.
