I’m not sure where to put this so I’m putting this topic under “General Duscussion”.
For those who aren’t familiar with Mexican folk traditions, Santa Muerte is a Saint of sorts, but in a dark way. She is commonly connected with the Grim Reaper. Even though her origins are Catholic, the Catholic Church doesn’t support recognition of her, yet she is often valued and even worshipped among the hispanic Catholic daispora, most commonly by minorities like the LGBT+ community and immigrants. For this reason, she is associated with protection as well as death.
Santa Muerte cults are common in Mexico, from where she originated. Practices involving her in rituals often have Catholic elements like prayer beads with a cross on it (often modified to show Santa Muerte), but there are elements of African-origin traditions like Voodoo.
I want to work with Santa Muerte because I am part of the LGBT+ community and I have interests in Latino culture. She also seems to have called to me on a few occasions. I would like to know if anyone has has ever worked with her or are also interested to.
Thank you in advance.
