Explore Afro-Caribbean Traditions in Greater Boston

Recent Caribbean immigration to Greater Boston has brought with it a number of African-inspired religions, including Santeria from Cuba and Vodou from Haiti. It is difficult to determine the size of the Afro-Caribbean religious population in Boston as ceremonies are rarely publicized and often take place in private homes. Practitioners frequent botanicas–stores that supply the religious objects for Santeria and Vodou practice–a number of which are present in the Boston area.
