Walé Oyombé, Bored and Alone

Back in colonial times, territory administrators would impose forced labour onto entire communities. Comparing her life in seclusion to these days, Wale Oyombé expresses her daily loneliness and boredom when women that look after her go to work in the fields. The ritual imposes various taboos onto a Walé, such as going to the fields or preparing food.
