    FOR ANCESTORS AND GOD: RITUALS OF SACRIFICE AMONG THE CHAGGA OF TANZANIA by Päivi Hasu
    Abstract


    This article discusses the rituals of sacrifice among the patrilineal Chagga people of northern Tanzania in terms of the historical context of double burial and related sacrifices. Despite more than a hundred years of Christianity in the area, ancestor veneration and sacrifices remain important elements in the rituals of kin groups, as when the relatively well educated, migrant Chagga return home at Christmas to commemorate their ancestors. The analysis draws from the classic studies of sacrifice as a gift, a communion, and an effective representation by focusing on sacrificial substances, participants, and spatio-temporal movement. It examines ritual cuisine, sequences of substances and their processing in the course of reconstituting the social community, and transforming the dead into ancestors. Rituals of sacrifice are part of a larger set of rituals that place both the living and the dead in ancestral lands.

    Mimi binafsi sioni kosa lolote kufanya tambiko kwani hata hizo ibada mnazoenda siku maalum ya kila wiki nazo ni tambiko pia.
    Jaribuni kuangalia jamii nyingine za kihindi,kichina na kijapani pia kule america ya kusini wanafanya nini au kule africa ya kusini wazulu na wale jamaa wa GODIES MUST BE CRAZZY hufanya nini...siyo tu ukurupuke na kuanza kuwasemasema wachagga.
    kila jamii ina miungu wake inaemuamini kwa hiyo kama jamii yanu haina mungu au miungu basi do what chaggas do.

    nowdays naona haya mambo yameisha. Ni sehemu chache sana ambazo still wanafuata mila za zamani! Misimu ya sikukuu huwa ni kwenda tu kufurahia na familia na wazee.

    This is a publication from one of the peer journal. It has nothing to do with my personality with chaggas! Your comment is irrelevant and uncalled for

    mimi ni mchaga tena original toka nimezaliwa sijawahi ona this kind of thing and every x-mas and easter im home, this was long time ago, mainly we go home to great families na kupeleka hata sukari kwa wazee na ndugu wasiojiweza na kuangalia kama nyumba tunazotuma hela zijengwe zimejengwa but not to sacrifice. and even if there is such a thing its a small percent of the whole tribe

    thanks for the article i will have a good tour this x-mas.
