Travels with Tooy
University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the next step in Tooy's voodoo treatment of Roland. It describes the procedure which involved a bag of toad, empty beer bottles, six supermarket eggs, and some king of liquid from a clay Dungulali-Obia bottle and leaves, roots and vines that Tooy brought with him from Cayenne. This chapter also discusses the Samarakas' belief that the gaan-o bias remain as each clan's most valuable possessions and many are believed to have been brought by specific ancestors from Africa.

Keywords:   Tooy, voodoo treatment, Cayenne, Samarakas, gaan-o-bias, Africa
