Tamara L Siuda (Mambo Chita Tann)

n her own words, Tamara L. Siuda is a curious individual. Encouraged by her parents and a large multicultural, multiracial extended family, she has been involved in many different spheres of life: from the histories and cultures of her Onondaga (Six Nations Iroquois) and various European ancestors, to those of Egypt, Western Africa, and the African Diaspora in the Caribbean.

As Mambo Chita Tann, Tamara is a Haitian Vodou priestess, and the author of Haitian Vodou: An Introduction to Haiti’s Indigenous Spiritual Tradition. She is the head of Sosyete Fos Fe Yo We, a Vodou house in the lineage of Mambo Marie Carmel Charles of New Orleans, Louisiana and Haiti, and has been a practicing Vodouisant for 15 years.

Separately, Tamara is a professional Egyptologist and the founder and Nisut (spiritual leader) of the Kemetic Orthodox Religion, a modern form of ancient Egyptian polytheism. She has written books and academic papers about Egypt, was featured in a History channel documentary, and was the 2014 Polytheist Leadership Conference’s keynote speaker. Tamara has more than 25 years of experience as a teacher, author, and lecturer on ancient Egypt and its religion.

She also supports interfaith work and social justice issues, and was a delegate to the 2004 Parliament of World Religions’ assembly of religious leaders convened to discuss international debt.
