Village of Morafeno, Madagascar: the Ombiasa, known as Manjovala, is the healer everyone turns to when they are suffering and need to be cured. In this photo he is in the midst of a ceremony, waiting for the spirit he works with to give him guidance. The Coca-Cola bottle in his wife's hand serves as one of the many offerings they use to attract the spirit and then offer it afterwards as thanks. Photo courtesy of Haleemah Jackson '14
