Chicken’s feet charms are common in the African South, Voodoo, Hoodoo, and Conjure traditions. These traditions focus on a practical, low-cost approach to magick: which is part of what I like about them. Another advantage of Hoodoo is that it’s a distinctly New World and American branch of magick. Hoodoo is where European, African, and Native American beliefs and practices converge and this makes it accessible to most Americans. I think this has to do with part of its growing popularity. If you look at traditional Conjure and Rootwork traditions you may also find that Wicca and Witchcraft as practiced in the United States has many similarities.
