No Vodou haitiano, Papa Legba é o intermediário entre o loa e a humanidade. Ele está em uma encruzilhada espiritual e dá (ou nega) permissão para falar com os espíritos de Guinee, e acredita-se que fale todos os idiomas humanos. Ele é sempre o primeiro e o último espírito invocado em qualquer cerimônia , pois sua autorização é necessária para qualquer comunicação entre os mortais e os loa (ele abre e fecha as portas). No Haiti, ele é o grande elocução, a voz de Deus, como era o caso.

FUN WITH VEVES! Veves are drawn symbols used to call/honor/serve the Vodou spirits (lwa or les lois). They are the calling cards to and from the spirit world. This particular veve is to honor Papa Legba. But here comes the fun part! Tell me what you see! There are said to be lots of hidden pictures and messages - do you just see a bunch of squiggly lines or do you see much more? ;-)
Papa Legba is a spirit often found in Caribbean religions. He is a "gatekeeper". He is called first in religious ceremonies because he is in charge of communication between the spirit world and the human world. His depiction varies depending on location, but his role is usually very similar. He has been compared to St. Peter, because he is in charge of entrance into the other world.
