War Between Two Villages by Taelen, Lukas Vander

Every year during the rain season Senegalese youth who live in the city return back to their native village. They help their family by bringing in the rice harvest and play in the Navetanes competition. Almost all villages in Senegal are associated in this competition. Villages that once fought each other in local wars now defend their honor on the football field . The prestige and prosperity of the whole community depends on the performance of the local team. Where football talent is not enough people rely on the supernatural ( voodoo).
