<< Minokan, Milokan or Midokan means the "invisible and spiritual cord (or
that binds all the Lwas". >>
How do we know this? In what language does Minokan mean "invisible cord
which binds all the lwa"?
Indeed Minokan refers to all the lwa taken together as a group, but I
hesitate to attribute literal meanings to words from other languages. For
instance, "hounsi" in Fon means "bride of the spirit", but in Vodou a hounsi
is not married to any lwa at all, there is a separate ceremony in which
people marry lwa.
