Speaking With God: A Mossi Diviner in Burkina Faso
 

African divination is used to communicate with the spirit world and to discover the sources of disaster, failure, death and disease. Diviners use a variety of techniques to communicate with the spirit world. This spectacular video, filmed in Burkina Faso in 2005 and 2006, shows an elderly diviner called a Baga, who wears a complex costume as he speaks with God. The watercolors of the Baga to the left and right were painted in 1907 by a German explorer.
