~Reclaming My Cosmo-Genetic Path To God~
Enstoolment as Mamissii Hounon
I am a Mami Wata, Yeveh Vodoun, Mama Tchamba, and Amengansie Priest, and lineage trained herbalist initiated first to my crown spirit Mami Wata in 2003 by Chief Hounon-Amengansie Mama Zogbe (of the Mami Wata Healers Society, located in Martinez,Georgia) and Mamissii Arita of (Togo,West Africa). In 2007 I under went initiation to my ancestral lineage's Yeveh Vodoun and in 2009 to the Royal Mama Tchamba(Ancestral Slave Sibs) by Chief Hounon-Amengansie Mama Zogbe. In April of 2011, in Togo, West Africa I under went my final ancestral initiation and became Hounon- Amengansie.

( First African-American Male Amengansie from Diaspora in America)
I am God-gifted with spiritual sight and since childhood I have been training in traditional herbal lore/medicine and hoodoo spiritual work by both my Great-Great Grandmothers and Aunt who were both Vodoun Priestess and Master Herbalist's. I have been training extensively in the Port Royal Mountains Of Jamaica for over 10years with a master herbalist and Kumina Priestess.
After the passing of my mothers, I endured many years of soul searching, personal/spiritual suffering, spiritual exploitation and intense spirit manifestations. It was through Mami Wata that i finally found what my soul was in search of: The spiritual traditions of my most ancient African mothers/fathers- and it is to them that I dedicate my life's work.

Today, after proper ceremonies instituted under "True Divine Spiritual Authority", my soul has finally found the peace it was desperately in search of. As a fully initiated/trained Mami Wata Vodoun Priest and now Amengansie, i have been called to help educate the Diaspora and the world on the true Vodoun tradition; removing it from the hands of misguided Western Christian Evangelicals, Hollywood fabrication, and non Diasporan/African frauds and opportunists who have continued to mock and misrepresent African Traditions for centuries, with out anyone challenging their so-called truth about "US". They have continued with their futile attempts to discredit and rewrite "Our" history leaving "Us" out of it.
I have been commissioned by God,the Ancestors and the Vodou to offer correct spiritual knowledge and assistance to aid in the healing process and restoration of the true Diaspora/African Vodoun and the soul of African people world wide.
I give thanks to my Most Ancient Mothers,
Special thanks and appreciation to Chief Hounon-Amengansie "Mama Zogbe" of the Mami Wata Healers Society. Thank you Mama for everything!
