Video Friday: Deep Yawo

At one point today I had to pinched myself, as there I was in the bush involved in a deep Yawo ritual. Who gets to see this stuff? No pre-packaged-off-the-beaten-track tour will get you these type of experiences.  They only come with time and relationship.

It was the day where a group of young girls had finished their initiation rituals and were now coming back to the village and their families – it’s a big day of celebrations. I was invited to join as some good friends had a family member with a daughter in group. Have a look at the video for a window into Yawo culture…
