Papa Loko is the very first Houngan and he is the father of all Houngans and Mambos! His wife is Ayizan and together they bless all new kanzo initiates and are keepers of the rites of kanzo ritual. When a person becomes initiated into Vodou and becomes a Mambo or Houngan, Papa Loko hands them the Asson, the sacred rattle used to invoke the spirits. Papa Loko teaches the correct ceremonies and ways of Vodou, keeping tradition and knowledge of Vodou alive.
Honor to Papa Loko!
