La Santa Muerte ˆ Mexican Folk Saint Personifying Death
A relatively new and controversial folk saint has emerged in the Americas ˆ La Santa Muerte (Saint Death or Most Holy Death,) a syncretic version of the European grim reaper influenced by Meso-American views on death and folk religion. Most media accounts of Santa Muerte focus on the faith practices of traffickers and murderers, but in reality her devotees include millions of people not involved in the drug trade. They see her as an efficient miracle worker and healer in their lives.
