Savalou mother and child

The Dankoli shrine is one of, if not the, most important vodun/vodoun/voodoo shrines in Benin. The ritual steps involve offerings of palm oil, of local spirit

Akbateshie, which is spat / sprayed over the fetish, wooden pegs that are hammered in and animals (chickens and apparently goats) that are sacrificed, leaving a carpet of feathers in the entire area. Traditionally two chickens are also offered after your wish is fulfilled, as a form of thanks.
