A Sangoma Prepares
A Sangoma (witch doctor or traditional healer in Zulu) presides over the offerings prepared as a blessing to enable her wisdom and divination.
The Waiting Room
Men wait to meet with the sangoma. A visit such as this could be for a specific problem they are expeiencing (often involving ancestors) or just to gain much needed luck in the coming months.
Slaughtered Chicken Offering
Eating the slaughtered chicken is thought to imbibe the consumer with the power that sangoma placed in it.
African Beer II
Sangoma and her Daughter
After meeting with her patients, the Sangoma came out to sing and consume the offerings, accompanied by her daughter.
African Beer III
Singing and dancing, the visitors to the sangoma celebrate as she drinks a traditional african beer.
