One of the religions in Cuba is the African American Santería "worship of saints" which blends elements of the Catholic Church and West African beliefs. After their initiation, participants must wear white from head to toe for one year as a symbol of purity. This woman sitting on the wall outside the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Regla (Church of Our Lady of Regla- the Black Madonna and "African goddess of the sea") is wearing all white. Had she just finished initiation, or was she just a lady dressed in white with parasol?
