Types of Folk Magic

Greetings! I have been curious about hoodoo and been reading up on it lately. I'm wondering what other types of folk magic there are? I know about Pennsylvania Dutch Pow Wow and Granny Magic, but are there others?

Most semi isolated regions develop some form of folk magic unique to their area, that grow from roots in shamanism. I recently read a piece on Icelandic magic. Local folk history societies web sites are sources of info. Cornish is wildly popular amongst pagan writers. Also densely populated areas like New York City, Detroit, & Mexico City have brujaria urban sub cultures openly practicing folk magic. Botanica shops are becoming more visible where Yoruban and Condoble religions are active. there's been a lot of immigration in the past 20 or so years that adds flavor.
