About the Facilitator, Jatohn "Jah" Redeaux | @carinaeconjure: 

Jatohn (or Jah) [she / her] is many things--a Conjurer, a Rootworker, an Ancestral Medium, an Apetebi within Orisha Tradition, and a teacher. But in the simplest terms, they are a Hoodoo. Her people come by way of Natchez, Mississippi, and Opelousas, Louisiana, and made their way to Chicago (the land of the Kiikaapoi, Peoria, Kaskaskia, Potawatomi, Myaamia and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ people) during the Great Migration. She was very blessed to have the first 14 years of her life with great-grandparents who told her stories of old folktales, rootwork, & how to make things work - even when it seemed like it couldn't. Jatohn hopes to share some of the lessons learned while her great-grandparents were alive and what they continue to teach her from the other side! Learn more about her work and keep in touch at www.carinaeconjure.com and @carinaeconjure on social media.
