Their lives are close to the sea, they go to the sea to communicate with God, they need God to sustain themselves, their faith and their beliefs. This project is about the traditional religious heritage of Mozambique, where the Zionists still preserve some ancient traditions in the south. The Christian movement aside, the traditional African religions involve teachings, practices and rituals that are a part of the structure of native societies in Africa. These religions were not significantly altered by the more recently adopted religions, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and others. It is estimated that about 100 million people throughout Africa follow these religions.
The Zionists are known as followers of a religion that cures many diseases, weaknesses, psychological and spiritual problems.
