A chicken has been sacrificed and is now being skinned and trimmed of meat at a Santeria ceremony in someone's apartment. The Santeria religion has its roots in the Yoruba people who came to Cuba as slaves and hid their beliefs in Orishas (gods and goddesses) by incorporating them with the Catholic religion and saints. Although discouraged after the Cuban revolution, Santeria is now officially tolerated and, with the weakening of socialist ideology, is growing in popularity in Cuba.
