With only one leg, Cancy Laker casts aside her braces to dance with local community members during a traditional Acholi wedding in Parracelle, Uganda.   The marriage was set to take place between a local man and his second wife but was not permitted after the bride’s family rejected the dowry offering.   The group danced from the morning to the late evening despite the failed nuptials.
