In process, 2018

In this project, I am trying to uncover the untold story of my maternal grandmother and unearth our bonds.

My grandmother was a traditional healer, a "witch," who was Gurunsi from the south of Burkina Faso and lived in Ouagadougou since the 1950s. She had a spiritual connection with the Baobab tree and was named Katiou, tree-woman in Gurunsi.

It will soon be 10 years since my grandmother passed away, and I am growing more and more curious about her, eager to discover more than I can gather through memory.
