Max Beauvoir, Haiti’s supreme leader of voodoo, dies

By Rueters Staff
HAITI---Max Gesner Beauvoir, the “Ati” or supreme leader of voodoo, Haiti’s traditional Afro-Caribbean religion, died at the age of 79, his family said. “Voodoo heals the mind, soul and body. The soul is what we are, which controls everything, all our actions and mind,” Beauvoir told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a January interview at a voodoo temple inside his coral stone-walled home outside the capital Port-a-Prince.
