Witchdoctor Utu is an author, the founder of the Dragon Ritual Drummers, the Niagara Voodoo Shrine and is a member of the New Orleans Voodoo Spiritual Temple. For the last seventeen years he has been immersed in the root work, conjure and mysticism surrounding the lore and legacy of the Underground Railroad. Living in St. Catharines Ontario, where Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman brought her “track” to its end, he has been up front and integral over the last decade of continuing to uplift and elevate the spirit of Mama Moses and her surrounding spiritual court. Witchdoctor Utu travels extensively in both Canada and the United States to teach, lecture and facilitate rituals at some of the largest spiritual gatherings on the continent. Utu's new book "Conjuring Harriet 'Mama Moses' Tubman and the Spirits of Underground Railroad", published by Red Wheel Weiser Books will be available at Hex Fest and at Hex New Orleans.
