"There is one dominant La Madama, who is in charge of a host of personal Madama spirits."

She's from Puerto Rican Espiritismo, and she's supposed to be brought to you by her image, and is a patroness of fortune-tellers, psychics, mediums and healers.

Sounds interesting to me from an interested individual's (not a practitioner's, I just enjoy learning) perspective. Where did you get the quote? Source material please?

From Encyclopedia of Spirits by Judika Illes. She has quite an extensive entry on La Madama, actually.

It's a little fuzzy with some things, but the facts are generally solid and thorough, I recommend it.

I can back it too, that book has been tremendously useful to me.  (BTW, I did not look her up in my copy before answering you, I just did a google search).

La Madama is one of many archetypal spirits within the pantheon of Caribbean/Latin American Spiritism. She represents the female force within the family unit and is also known as “La Negra” or “La Conga”. Historically, her representation is derived from that of the “house slave”, i.e., the slave responsible for the caring and well-being of master’s family.

In spiritism she manifests as a strong female spirit who fiercely protect their children. She brings blessings to those that venerate her and this oil is designed to draw blessings, protection, guidance and good fortune into your life.  Her male counterpart is usually what is referred to as the “Congo”, “Ta Jose” or the “Negro”.

Hope this helps
