A group of self-described Peruvian shamans carried out a ceremony at Lima’s Cerro San Cristobal on Monday, where they expressed their support for President Barack Obama, ahead of Tuesday’s presidential election, RPP reported.
The shamans, dressed in ponchos, sang and danced around photographs of President Obama, and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The shamans then placed incense around photographs of President Obama, and rubbed ‘good luck’ branches, Terra reported. The group then struck a photograph of Romney with maracas and metal swords.
“The apus and guardian forces favor [Obama],” said the group’s leader, Juan Osco, according to Terra.
“The undecided [voters] in the U.S. will be influenced by the magnetic force that Obama has,” he added.
