Marie Catherine Laveau (September 10, 1801 – June 15, 1881) [nb 1] was a Louisiana Creole practitioner of Voodoo, herbalist and midwife, who was renowned in New Orleans. Her daughter, Marie Laveau II, (1827–c. 1862) also practiced rootwork, conjure, Native American and African spiritualism as well as Louisiana Voodoo. An alternate spelling of her name, Laveaux, is considered by historians to be from the original French spelling.
