Entering the Domains of Oxossi
Religion, environmental education and conservation come together at the Japi Mountains, where we are carrying out a research work for our postgrad course in Science Journalism. We chose a subject that is very interesting for being controversial, apparently full of doubts and prejudice: the offerings left in the woods by followers of the Afro-Brazilian Umbanda in natural areas (forests, rivers and waterfalls).
Last week, during two days we joined a local Umbanda group to gather information, images and testimonials. Within some weeks our task shall be accomplished, and the results will be posted here at FotogramaBits. Don’t miss it!
