Abstract:

In Togo, Sikavi, the voodoo fetish master, leads a death ceremony which only the initiated may attend. In order to help bridge the gap between "barbarism and civilization, " Sikavi explains his liturgy by using its Judeo-Christian correspondences. He illustrates "the force of the Word" described in the Bible by killing with the voice, healing with blood, and putting death at the service of the living.

This use of occult forces which is a powerful reality of African societies is questioned by its children who see it only as a mad quest for power.
