Ewe followers of the militant deity Koku dance to the frenzied rhytms of voodoo drums at the King of Voodoo’s Inauguration in Ouidah, Benin. They are protected from harm by wearing fiber skirts from the alatsi tree and by smearing a paste made of palm oil, maize flour and herbs on their bodies. When the deity enters their bodies and releases its force into their veins, the devotees are able to perform superhuman feats, such as rolling into prickly pear cactus and feeling no pain. 2006
