Harry M. Hyatt was a European- American Anglican preacher, who gathered information on Hoodoo Conjuration Witchcraft Rootwork in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia between 1936 and 1940. During that time he gathered information on Hoodoo Conjuration Witchcraft Rootwork he transcribed and recorded the interviews with around 1600 African Americans & white Americans. Hoodoo Conjuration Witchcraft Rootwork written by Harry M. Hyatt consist of five very large volumes. Some of the works he was given is very good; most of it is not. Some of it is just foolishness. He paid for information when times were very hard for people and he got just what he paid for. One would think that after gathering this information for four years he would have been at least able to tell the foolishness from the real works.
There are some who have built thier whole business on his works and I feel that some of that information is dangerous. We are going to look at some of the works in Hoodoo Conjuration Witchcraft Rootwork by Mr. Hyatt and talk about them. Don’t get me wrong some of those works are very good and go along with what I have been taught; but like I said some of it is just foolisheness.
