On the Hunt for Grasshoppers in DRC


Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa

Joshua Kasereka (foreground), 22, joins others of the Nande community in Democratic Republic of Congo in hunting for grasshoppers, which they later will sell or cook and eat with fufu, a staple food made from cassava flour. According to local tradition, grasshoppers come from the goddess Nyabahasa, who frees them periodically – generally in November and December – to create joy in families.
