Events and Festivals

June 21

The event will not happen on June 21, as planned; it is postponed to a later date this summer.

The day begins with a Walking Out Ceremony; games, music , and arts and crafts throughout the day followed by feast to which everyone is invited. The ceremony of the first steps marks a stage in the life of the child. It takes place very early in the morning, in a tent whose door is oriented towards the east for the sunrise. Before the age of one year, the child is apprenticed to his extended family. At the age of one, the child begins to go out and discover the world. He is put in contact with the community. From then on, his education will come from the whole community.
