Abstract Vor den zu verrichtenden Opfern wird das Orakel befragt. Nach Ankündigung der Opfer durch eine Trompete werden am Margai-Altar Hühner und Hirsebier geopfert. Das restliche Bier wird von den Anwesenden getrunken. Eine andere Opferhandlung zeigt einen Margai-Priester, der ein Bieropfer darbringt. Die Margai (Naturgeister) werden durch weibliche Medien befragt, die sich in tranceartigem Zustand befinden.
Shows scenes of a sacrifice at a Margai altar. An old man blasts a sacred trumpet in order to announce the ceremony, while women brew the millet beer necessary for the proceedings. A father and two grown sons pray at the altar, then sacrifice chickens. The containers on the altar are filled with the millet beer; the rest of the beverage is drunk by the men in attendance, and the priest performs a beer offering.
