This chapter examines the leadership and internal dynamic of the Bogum and Seja Hundé terreiros in the twentieth century. Additionally, the end of the chapter presents information on other Jeje terreiros that operated during the same period. The author discusses Seja Hundé first, and presents the names, nicknames (or names by which they were commonly known), voduns, and the likely period of leadership of its successive gaiakus (one of the titles used among the Jeje to designate the mãe-de-santo or leader of the house). The first gaiaku of Seja Hundé, Maria Luiza do Sacramento, whose ruim or ritual African name was Arrunsi Missimi (probably a deformation of Hunsi Mesime), was known as Agorensi Mesime or Maria Agorensi. Agorensi is the title given to those vodunsi consecrated to the vodun Bessen, the head of the Jeje-Mahi nation.
