Haiti - Belle Anse - Tradition - The Carnival of the Ferocious

Three days before Ash Wednesday, Haiti celebrates the carnival. Away from the cities were the festivities westernized, the inhabitants of Belle-Anse, a small village of fishermen located on the Caribbean Sea, maintain the celebration of the carnival under the Haitian traditions. Children and adults paint their bodies in beige and black to symbolize the first inhabitants of the island, African and American Indian slaves, of which Haitians are descendants. | Location: Belle Anse, Haiti.
