Haitians, wearing clothes with the blood of goats and cows which were slaughtered as offerings to the spirits, dance on the second day of the annual week-long series of voodoo rituals in the Souvenance community March 31, 2013. Hundreds of Haitians participate in the ceremonies which begin the Saturday before Easter in Souvenance, where descendants of the people of Dahomey, a former kingdom in what is now present-day Benin, show their devotion to their ancestors and various lwa, or spirits, This second day of ceremonies is when goats and cows are sacrificed and then cooked to feed the population.
