Hoodoo is a part of the African Diaspora and dates back as early as 1891
            on paper but its gos back further.  The work Hoodoo consists of a large body of
     the African folkloric practices and beliefs that mixes Native American knowledge
     plants.Hoodoo,Rootwork,Conjure,and Lay a trick are words that apply to this magic.

            I was told that the Indian belief resemble those in West Africa conjuring includes
      conjuring includes magical herbalism giving respect to ancestors,divination,and
      medicine bundles/mojos.  

Rootworkers are not witches they are conjurers. Hoodoo is folk magic
    Hoodoo is the folk magic of the Southern American states, but it can
    also be considered a melting pot of the world's sorceries. it's a mixture of all sorts
    of different unlikely ingredients that work well together. Its main components are
    African folk magic, European folk tradition, and Native American Herbalism.

    It shouldn't be confused or conflated with any of the African
    Diaspora religious traditions such as Haitian Voodoo, Cuban Santeria or Brazilian
    Candomble or Umbanda. Although there's a degree of cross-mixture.

    Hoodoo had its time in America during the late 19th and early 20th
    century. The bulk of its lore is African in origin and it was practiced mostly,
    although not exclusively, within in the South. If you listen to blues music of the 20s and
    30s it's steeped in hoodoo tradition,from the myth of Robert Johnson cutting a deal at
    the crossroads, to Memphis Minnie's recording of 'Hoodoo Lady'. The music of the
    period is a catalogue of references to folk magic.
    Such as 'Stones in my passway'. Which is a reference to the hoodoo practice of jinxing
    someone by laying out a series of stones in the shape of a cross in their path,
    often with a button belonging to the target placed in the center as a link. In the song
    Come on in my kitchen is about stealing a nickel out of his woman's 'nation sack', which
    is a  mojo bag  specifically prepared by female practitioners and carried by women.

African folkloric practices such as crossroads magic, foot  
  track magic crossing and
uncrossing,the creation of gris-gris bags,  
 and the use of
baths and washes are all at the core of hoodoo practice.
