Naming Ceremony

Naming Ceremony

The naming ceremony of a seven day old boy in the village of Samecouta, in southeastern Senegal near Kedougou. An older woman reaches for a single-blade razor to shave the head of the infant as a friend of the child's mother cradles him. By tradition, a child is named a week after birth, but his hair must be shaved so that his head can be touched directly during the naming process. The hair is considered to be unclean and therefore is removed.
In Samecouta, as well as other villages and towns, women are very much present in ceremonies. At this naming ceremony, there were about thirty women present and only nine men.
