Lens on Africa: IZEKI FESTIVAL

Izeki Festival is a coming of age festival that comes up once in 11 or 15 years in Umoghun- Nokhua Village in Edo State,Nigeria.  Those being inducted into the new age group celebrate their freedom from partaking in community service by enacting ancient war dances using cutlasses.
