Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)
Part of “our” culture shows spiritual activities taking place. “Our” culture is based on many different tribes. This picture is “Shango,” the reverend is in the image and the sheep’s head is representing the feast.
What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)
A true representation of what’s not seen by tourists and some locals.
Some Grenadians fear this type of ceremony.
African culture which is also “we culture.”
Songs, drumming, killing animals all are part of African ritual/ancestry.
