Haitian Initiation


Ayizan plays a key role in the kanzo (initation) of Haitian Vodou candidates for the priesthood. Though non-initiates, I think, cannot see all of it, there is a beautiful ceremony involving an "empty" white draped chair and the splitting and dramatically twirling of palm fronds as part of the intiation process. I adore Ayizan and love the energy of this card. I connect, in varying degrees, with the depictions of the Lwa ands Orisha in this deck but Ayizan is right on.
