A Sangoma (witch doctor or traditional healer in Zulu) presides over the offerings prepared as a blessing to enable her wisdom and divination.
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.
Eating the slaughtered chicken is thought to imbibe the consumer with the power that sangoma placed in it.
After meeting with her patients, the Sangoma came out to sing and consume the offerings, accompanied by her daughter.
Singing and dancing, the visitors to the sangoma celebrate as she drinks a traditional african beer.
