Paganism & Wicca - What Is Nganga?

 

This pan Bantu term means "power," "secret," or "soul," and it refers to occult practitioners like as herbalists, magicians, shamans, and witch doctors. 


  • There are nganga families with generations of ancestors. 
  • Boys are taught by their dads or other male relatives, while girls are taught by their mothers or other female relatives. 
  • Individuals may also get advice from dead ancestors via divination, dreams, and ritual. 
  • Nganga may refer to magical and spiritual traditions as well as the practitioner, depending on regional accent.
