African tribes
Posted: Friday, November 17, 2006 9:22 AM
I'm writing a paper about violence in cultures and I'm looking into African tribes that use violence as a rite of passage into adulthood. I was hoping that you could provide me with the names of a few tribes. Thanks.

I can't tell of any tribe I'm aware of that uses violence as way to demonstrate their rites of passage. Although many tribes might inflict pain on those in passage, it is not considered violence. Such things might include: cutting forheads with a razor, burnning flesh, whippings, sleep or food depravation, and many other dangerous acts. You have to remember that a rites of passage is the end of one life and the begging of another, so the transformation proscess is not always easy. Violence is something that is unwarnted and/or unjustified; these sort of thing would not be common in ritual rites of passage.
