Barotse activist Mukwae Wabei Siyolwe has continued to present her artistic project "Wade in the Water” in Mexico.

Over the weekend, the Wade in the Water performances were scheduled for Sisal, Mexico and we will continue to follow her campaign across the world as she presents what she has described as a "hybrid multi-generational archival encounter", which pays tribute to her great grandfather King Lewanika of Barotseland, using photographs, documentaries, music and performances.

This project explores both her indigenous Barotse and her western identities.
