Burkina Faso Fulani Baptism African Women
In Burkina Faso, West Africa, Muslim families celebrate the birth of a child on the 7th day after birth.  Women throughout Ouagadougou - friends and family - congregate at the mother's house on the morning of the baptism to help cook for guests.  Here, women strain water through millet to make a traditional millet drink.
