The Secte Rouge, also called the Cochon Gris or the Vinbrindingue, is or was a secret society in Haiti, which Zora Neale Hurston described in her 1938 book Tell My Horse. She described them as a fearsome group of cannibals who performed rites distinct from vodou. Hurston provided descriptions of ceremonies to the gods Maitre Carrefour (Lord of the Cross Roads) and Baron Maitre Cimiterre, a deity involved with graveyards.
