Hoodoo is a form of predominantly African American traditional folk magic. Also known as conjure, it is a rich magical tradition that developed from the merging of a number of separate cultures and magical traditions.

It is often used to describe a magic spell or potion that also include conjuration, conjure, witchcraft, or rootwork.
