This article describes a Southern African traditional cultural ritual which is employed in order to reconcile hostile parties, namely parties who are at loggerheads about something and wish to resolve the conflict that is dividing them. Using resources gleaned from ritual and sociological studies, as well as from theology, the author offers an interpretive analysis of the ritual. The aim of the article is to illuminate the value and significance of traditional African rituals for the promotion of social reconciliation in the South African context. The present article is one of two essays that consider the named ritual.
