I want to make this statement because I call the spirit I work with La Madama.
I want to publicly thank my fellow spiritual-workers in the Afro-Cuban traditions for the name "LaMadama". As a traditional American Southern Root-Worker, the "Lady of the House" was a powerful matriarch of African descent who was a reader, mid-wife and powerful spiritual worker and an enduring presence in the spirit family of the southern worker. The names used in the media and racist imagery of this powerful figure is disrespectful and must never be endorsed in any way.
The image of LaMadama, as we all know, comes from the American South. The term "LaMadama" as we all know comes from Cuba. It is with great respect that I call upon the power and spirit of this revered African and African-American spiritual force so loved and respected by American Southern workers for over a century by the name "LaMadama". May we call upon the "Lady of the House"...LaMadama to guide our work and reveal all and any forces that seek to blind our eyes from truth or find our spirits from liberation!
