Sep. 27, 2003 - Saint Paul, Minnesota, U.S. - With the fastest growing Mexican population and the largest Hmong, Somal and Tibetan communities in America, the face of Minnesota is changing dramatically. A culture defines itself in many ways. The most dramatic is with its sacred ceremonies, where beliefs ancient or new are consecrated in song, prayer and dance. Pictured: Ethiopian Orthodox Church members gather during the cross burning ceremony which is a ritual that recalls the time, the Church believes that Jesus Christ's cross was found in ancient Ethiopia.
