Résumé

Marie, a healer in Antananarivo, the capital city of Madagascar, takes care of people in the name of the ancestors who guide and advise her. She uses plants and soil from worship places dedicated to historical ancestors. In the high central lands, on the summits of the Ankaratra mountains, she participates to the Alakaosy celebration, an important date in the Malagasy lunar calendar.
