No Vodou haitiano, Papa Legba é o intermediário entre o loa e a humanidade. Ele está em uma encruzilhada espiritual e dá (ou nega) permissão para falar com os espíritos de Guinee, e acredita-se que fale todos os idiomas humanos. Ele é sempre o primeiro e o último espírito invocado em qualquer cerimônia , pois sua autorização é necessária para qualquer comunicação entre os mortais e os loa (ele abre e fecha as portas). No Haiti, ele é o grande elocução, a voz de Deus, como era o caso.

One of the most cherished New Orleans Voodoo and Haitian Vodou spirits (Les Lois, The Lwa), Papa Alegba comes to us in many forms: He comes as an old man with a cane, a young child fascinated with toys, or a strong young man sent to help us find our way! He is the keeper of the crossroads, the gatekeeper, our window to gazing between our physical world and the spiritual world with which we hope to connect.
Papa Legba is a spirit often found in Caribbean religions. He is a "gatekeeper". He is called first in religious ceremonies because he is in charge of communication between the spirit world and the human world. His depiction varies depending on location, but his role is usually very similar. He has been compared to St. Peter, because he is in charge of entrance into the other world.
