Vibunzi

The Vibunzi represent children thus, each family uses as many ears of cons as it has children. Dr. Kanrenga states, “In traditional terminology, te ears of corn represent the produce of the stalk, and the potential, of the offspring to become stalks or producers and reproducers themselves, thus insuring the immortality of the people or nation.” Emphasis s placed on children, for they truly represent the hope for the future Therefore, if we instill the proper values in them and teach them the benefits of mutual respect, we insure a brighter tomorrow when we become elders.
