  1. Voodoo is a diverse religion with many differing traditions that call a variety of locations home. Voodoo spread from the "cradle of Voodoo," which is located in what is now southern Benin on the western African coast. It's practiced widely in northwestern Africa in countries like Togo and Ghana, among others. It's estimated that about 30 million people practice Voodoo in that region alone [source: National Public Radio: Radio Expeditions]. And because of the slave trade, Voodoo also has spread widely in the Caribbean and in areas of the southeastern United States such as Mississippi.
