Sample text

And the oldest son says: “Here is my father. Let us put him up so that his body rots inside the house. I am not going to bury my father in the ground until he has rubbed the staffs of his daughters, has shot the blood of the goat-cattle, has named his children, and has tied on the children’s bands. ” They bring him into the house and put him in the loft. Here the deceased is bent up into a squatting position with his hands up at his head, and he is covered tightly in the hide of an ox. Only his forehead is allowed to show.

This is said when he has already died. He is not put into a hole. A house for the dead man is made and he is put to rest in the loft. There he disintegrates for five or four months. Then there are the cattle’s horn and the goat’s horn rituals. The funeral is called an interview with the master2. Thus the rituals are kept secret from women and children. When we carry the corpse it is not taken across gullies but only taken along the ridges, always along the ridges, up to the huge forest called cherki3.
