Marie Laveau was the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. She was a woman of many powers, but among her most powerful were healing the sick, extending altruistic gifts to the poor, and overseeing spiritual rites. While she was a committed mother and wife, she also prioritized taking care of her spiritual children and the community that she lived in. The black priestess wielded tremendous power in her community and rumors of her magical powers is what would eventually bring her to fame.
She deviated far from what the norms were in her time. Laveau married a white man and went on to have a thirty-year relationship with him, she owned several slaves when she would become a free woman, and worked with people of all races, black and white included.
Jacques Paris, her husband of five years, passed away or left her in 1824. It isn’t known to this day which one was true, but regardless, she began to refer to herself as Widow Paris. She was also left with two children to raise. To make money, she began to work as a hairdresser for wealthy white women and Creole women of New Orleans. These women would confess their deepest secrets and desires about their partner or lover, their families, their land, their money, and their business affairs. Once she had her fifteen children with her new lover, Louis Christophe Dumesnil, her hairdressing career was finished. She then used to could devote all of her energy to her children.
As the Queen of Voodoo, she was the “mother” of many people. When these people would come to her for advice, she would help her practitioners by supplying them with advice or spiritual goods, ranging from candles to incense to powders to essential oils.
Throughout her lifetime, she would commit a big portion of her time to community service, such as: nursing patients, posting bail for women of color, and going to prison to pray with those who were in their final hours.
On June 15th, 1881, the Marie Laveau era came to an end when Marie died peacefully in her cottage on St. Ann Street at the age of 79. She has the most visited tomb in all of New Orleans’ cemeteries.
