p85 post-partum rites: (a case where the p[lacenta had not been deliviered)

The new mother was still sitting on a little round pole about as big as my arm, where she had delivered the child, now a good two hours ago - Id think shed be paralysed, but never a whimper. A banana leaf was still laying in front of her with some of the remnants of deliviery from the new baby still on it - the cord had not yet been cut. As soon as the placenta was out, the midwife took out a special plant, rubbed it across the mothers back and chanted something in Mambila. Then she took a stick and stuck it in the fire a little while and dipped it in ashes and made the new mother lick it as she chanted something else. Next, was the tying of the cord. The old woman took some twisted grass fibres, tied it about 3 inches from the body and promptly pinched off the rest. Then she produced a little round ball of something wrapped up in leaves. She put some water in a small calabash and mixed this in the water and an oily substance resulted. This mixture she used to anoint the baby and placenta and the mother.

p96. eating, division of labour. before they eat they always take a little nit of fufu with their right hand dip it in the soup and drop it on the ground. This is for the ancestors. Everyone, young and old, does this before every meal.... Men and women eat separately.

%X This work is an analysis of Mambila religion based on fieldwork

in Somie village, Cameroon. An ethnographic and historical introduction

to the Mambila is followed by an account of their religious concepts. It

is argued that, despite their adherence to Christianity (and to Islam),

traditional practices continue to be of great importance in everyday

life. In order to examine traditional practice descriptions are given of

divination and oath-taking rites. Translated transcripts of the

different forms of the sua-oath form the empirical core of the thesis.

The transcripts illustrate the way that Mambila experience and

understand the meaning of sua. Descriptions are also given of the sua

masquerades. Finally I examine problems inherent in the analysis of non

literate societies lacking a reflective tradition, and in particular,

societies lacking precise, structured religious concepts. This allows

for discussion of resulting implications on the relationships between

religion, politics and `symbolic power.'
