Papa Legba is a law in Haitian Vodou and Louisiana Voodoo, who serves as the intermediary between the law and humanity.

Legba facilitates communication, speech, and understanding. He is commonly associated with dogs. Papa Legba is invoked at the beginning of every ceremony. Papa Legba has his origins in the historic West African kingdom of Dahomey, located within present-day Benin.
