The Walé ritual imposes various taboos onto Lokito. So she spends most of her time in her mother’s hut. She takes care of herself and her child or looks after her belongings, accumulated in view of her future release. The seclusion period often extends as a result of a lack of means or if her husband disappears. But the honour of the clan and the Walé is at stake, and there is no way she will come out of seclusion without all required items.
