Dagara life





"...in Dagara life, the first few years of a child's life is spent with the grandparents, not the parents. What the grandparents and grandchildren share together ... that the parents do not ... is their close proximity to the cosmos. Grandparents will soon return to where the grandchildren came from, so therefore the grandchild is the bearer of news the grandparents need. The grandparents must get this information before the child forgets."
