Or Creolization with an Attitude
This chapter explores the religious creolization practices by the espiritista bruja(witch healers).

This creolization process was said to have been a form of “ritual piracy” resulting from irreverent appropriations or plunder of hegemonic religious symbols, rituals, and gestures.
