Festival Liberté Métisse: Photo Gallery

This past weekend the people of Reunion Island came together on the beach of l'Etang Salé to celebrate the Festival Liberté Métisse: The Festival of Mixed Freedom! This festival remembers the abolition of slavery and celebrates the diversity of the people that make the island so special.
