Sabina Garlough

The above photos were probably taken in 1970 near our house in the Dama Road section of Kenema. This Bondo gathering I looked upon as a "mock" Bondo initiation. The "initiates" - some were very young - probably less than two years old. I had the feeling that this was a plan to get the children involved before they were caught up in either the Catholic Church (which was nearby) or another mission church. This was my thinking although I do not remember ever having this confirmed. click on photo to enlarge
