Aniausse ritual - white

Outside of Abenguru / Abengourou is the village of Aniausse, home of a feticheuse who runs a school / centre, mostly for women, where trance-inducing dances are part of the ritual (the Komians) and the trance allows divination through the arrival of the spirit. Many of the women in the centre came as girls who had manifested some form of trance (or perhaps fits) and then were cured / initiated at Aniausse.
