HIGH JOHN

“High John de Conquer. If the news from overseas reads bad, if the nation inside seems like it is stuck…listen hard, and you will hear High John de Conquer treading on his singing-drum. You will know then, that no matter how bad things look now, it will be worse for those who seek to oppress us.”Zora Neale Hurston 

A popular folk hero in African American lore, High John the Conqueror has various origin stories. In one, he is said to be an African prince sold into slavery in the Americas, but with his spirit of resistance, escaped. Other folklore claims he fell in love with the Devil’s daughter, Lilith, was given impossible tasks to win her over, but tricked the devil into stealing her away instead. In both stories he is shown to be a trickster who prevails over any impossible-seeming situation, and is a celebrated figure in Hoodoo and Voodoo.

Light for success, victory, luck, love, protection, masculine power, legal success, and overcoming obstacles.
