After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Vodou has once again become a part of the public discussion about Haiti. Pat Robertsons remarks are only one of many examples of how the Euro-American perception of Vodou influences the public opinion about Haiti and its people. We talk to Gina Athena Ulysse, Haitian-born anthropologist at Wesleyan University, and to Kate Ramsey, historian of Haiti at the University of Miami, about the complicated relationship between Haiti's history, vodou and the West.
