SCarolina Hoodoo Archeology Artifacts Anthropology Documents

Unread postby gillis trinkett » Wed Mar 09, 2011 4:03 pm

Hi - I live in Beaufort, SC and have been seeking information on the practice of root work/conjure in this area. I have read the book by Sheriff Mcteer - "50 Years a Low Country Witch Doctor." which greatly interested me in learning more. However, I cant seem to find many references to practices that specifically relate to South Carolina and Georgia. Are there any that anyone knows of? Many Thanks.

Hi GIllis,

I am from South Carolina and lived in Beaufort for about a year before coming to the Pacific Northwest. I can tell you from experience that people don't usually talk about the practices but if you are in the right place at the right time, you can pick up some information by way of listening and asking the right questions.

I learned a great deal when I worked at the Winn-Dixie selling lottery tickets to the ladies that come in with their dream books. There's was also a store that sold some beautiful African Artwork, Jewelry, Music, etc...as well as a small selection of Vigil Candles that was owned by a practitioner who would give advice on how to burn them. I don't believe that I can tell you the name as this forum is for explaining Lucky Mojo products, but if you ask around you may be able to find it.

You may also want to visit Daufuskie Island, the home of the Gullah people. Books you may wish to read include

Not sure if I'll get a response but have you had any luck finding out more about Hoodoo/ Gullah magic around S.C? I live in Charleston and am also learning to learn as much as possible.

Thank you~

I learned quite a bit of conjure from a Gullah woman back in the early 1990s--she taught me good root doctoring and was actually from Georgia but had family in South Carolina. She unfortunately passed in 2005.

If you have access to Harry M. Hyatt's Hoodoo - Conjuration - Witchcraft - Rootwork, you will find plenty of material from South Carolina. I believe Lucky Mojo no longer has it for sale -- supplies are exhausted and there are no plans to reprint the books. But they do occasionally turn up on eBay at jaw-dropping prices, and they are DEFINITELY worth a look.

Hope this helps,

I was wondering if anyone can tell me where Valerie Fennell Boles (aka Minerva from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) is buried at? Internet searches have proved confusing. They all say she was buried at Jerusalem Cemetery but they all say different counties - either Colleton or Hampton. Does anyone know which one it is? I'm traveling to Savannah this weekend and I would love to pay my respects to her since it is so close to El Dia de Los Muertos/Samhain.
