La Source Ancienne Ounfo is a Vodou Temple and community of servitors located in New Orleans Louisiana. As a seven year member of that community I am drawn to share our house and the family I have joined with the rest of the world. In this section you will find information about our house, our mission and a bit about the people that devote so much of themselves to the service of the spirit, the community and the world.

Our house is run by renown Mambo Sallie Ann Glassman. Mambo Sallie Ann is an Haitian initiated Mambo and a loving leader of our spirituality. While Sallie Ann helps to guide us in our spiritual paths she puts no restrictions on our growth or our individual beliefs. We all find ourselves blessed to have, not only Sallie Ann, but each other to share our spirituality with.

I am an Haitian initiated Hounsi Kanzo and have been practicing the religion for 10 years. I am happy to answer questions you may have about the Vodou religion. I only ask that you be respectful and patient. I have a very busy schedule and answer emails as time allows me. This may take up to week.

If you have been to our Ounfo, public ceremonies or joined us in the St. Ann Parade on Mardi Gras; and have any pictures to share please do. You can email them to me or mail them to the address at the bottom of the screen. I will happily give credit to the photographer for any pictures I put on this website.

Love and blessings to you, Elly Maistros

Quotes:

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
