Saut-d'Eau, Haiti Pilgrimage

Haitians trek to waterfall for annual festival

(16 Jul 2016) Some carrying candles or calabash bowls with various offerings, tens of thousands of Haitians Saturday made a pilgrimage to bathe in sacred waterfalls. Scrubbing their bodies with aromatic leaves and soap, a mix of Voodoo and Christian faithful along with a young cohort of hard-partying revelers gathered on Saturday in the rushing waters of Saut d'Eau. They're praying for everything from winning lottery numbers to a good harvest and an end to Haiti's chronic political dysfunction. It was final day of this year's annual three-day festival. In the nearby town, pilgrims converged on the local church to pray to the Virgin Mary You can license this story through AP Archive: Find out more about AP Archive:
