A group of women praying YeMaYa, by the Mississippi river in New Orleans.

A group of women praying YeMaYa, Goddess of the living Ocean, considered the mother of all, who is believed to protect women, children and the water. This religious blessing happened on the banks of the Mississippi river in the Lower Ninth Ward, one of the neighborhood most affected by the hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
