Sample text

With nzaiko nene a lot of advice was given and information passed along to the initiates. After it the whole group would be sleeping outside on the verandah chaperoned by another woman until the day that the lady who did the scratch would be ready to have sex with her husband. That night is when we were allowed to sleep in the hut, but not in the same room with them, of course. During the nzaiko nene you had advisors who were referred to as hatchers [awifeii], as with eggs. Our hatchers told us the bad things we should not do.

It was also Berida's first religious affiliation, in which she followed her mother, who gave up her functions and status as a diviner. 26 After her marriage Berida followed her mother-in-law into the Catholic Church, where she seems to have experienced a religious awakening. Her hyperfertility can partly be attributed to the Christian abandonment of the prohibition on sexual intercourse during lactation that had been common locally27 and to the biblical exhortation to go forth and multiply that is stressed by priests and cited by Berida.

But now I am Berida Ndambuki. Ndambuki is my husband. He married me when I was young. But in 1957 after attending catechism class for four years I was given the name Berida, and everyone calls me that except Ndambuki when he is being bad. He then uses Mathei but he is the only one that does that. After I took more classes I was given the name Lucia to show that I am a complete Christian and accept Jesus. It is fine for you to use my real name here and those of my family; maybe if my husband sees how he looks here he will change his ways.
