Plaine du Nord Festival in Haiti

CAPE HAITIAN, HAITI - JULY 23: Voodoo followers make the pilgrimage to pray and swim in a mud pool during a mass ritual in which thousands sacrifice animals and pray in pools to ask for help with the future and children, at the Plaine du Nord festival the 23rd of July, 2011 in Cape Haitian, Haiti. The Plain du Nord has strong Vodou spirit associations. An annual festival is held here, attended by Vodou pilgrims. They bathe themselves, similar to a baptism, in a sacred mud pool, “honoring the spirit Ogou”. Voodoo ceremonies and rituals occur at the mud pool, including the sacrifice of animals. Voodoo is a religion born over 200 years ago due to the mixture between different rites and beliefs of the African slaves brought to Haiti and the Christian religion of their owners. Voodoo believers make the pilgrimage from all over Haiti as well as from across the U.S., Canada and Europe to renew their beliefs and find strength through the baptism-like ceremony and other rituals.
