Simbi in Haitian Voodoo

Represented in Haitian Voodoo, the Simbi is a snake whose Vodoun heritage can be traced to the Kongo region in West Central Africa. The family of snakes is diverse and some varieties include: the Simbi of the Water (the Simbi Dlo or d'l'eau) the Simbi Andezo or Simbi of Two Waters, the Simbi Makaya and the Gran Simba. Within the Haitian Voodoo context, the variety includes the Simbi Anpaka, which is a Loa, or spirit within the realm of Voodoo, that inhabits poisons, leaves and plants.
