Oya Oyadan - saida de Yiaò

The "saida de Yiaò" is the final rite in which the initiates ("Yiaòs") are shown to the people after being held closed for several days in a room. Quite unusual, in this terreiro a puppet representing the Yiaò is tied to a column in the room. Terreiro of Oya Oyadan, Salvador, Aug. 2003.
