NAWUN DEIN SUHUGU (God bless you)
This is in the language, "Dagbani." It is such a beautiful language. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to go to a funeral of a local Dagbani chief close to the village where I am learning. It was such a beautiful event. I learned that each group of people who attend from the varying villages make an entrance with their entourage/group. The groups include the chief, his family, various village residents, the gon gon players and the gogi players along with the historians. At the end of the procession are the warriors, I tried to capture some in this photo.
