Oshituthi Shomagongo: Marula Fruit Festival

Language: English

The Oshituthi shomagongo, marula fruit festival runs for two to three days between March and April where eight Aawambo communities from northern Namibia meet to enjoy ''omagongo'' - a beverage made from the fruit. To prepare, men carve utensils and serving tools and the women make baskets, pots, and gather the fruit with young people, to process and ferment the juice. Traditional songs are sung, poems recited and lives discussed. Transmitted through observation and participation, the element unites generations and communities.
