Ezili Dantor: Patroness of the Haitian Revolution

Ezili Danto

Ezili Danto or Dantor is part of the Ezili (Erzulie) family of loa in Haitian Vodou. She can be fierce, aggressive, temperamental, and hard to deal with at times. Though, she is also a very nurturing loa as Erzulie Dantor is the protector of children, abused and scorned women, and prostitutes. Due to her role in assisting with the liberation of the Haitian people, she is often referred to as the Patroness of the Haitian Revolution. Join Vodouisant Ritchy Thermidor and Dr. Asanee Brogan in this episode as we discuss this very important deity in the Haitian Vodou pantheon.
