Title:Continuity of religious ritual among the Muslim Diola: The Buluf rain ceremony
Author:Mark, P.
City of publisher:Waltham
Publisher:African studies association
Geographic term:Senegal
Subject:rituals & festivals
Abstract:The author describes the broad range of religious ritual which exists among the Diola of Buluf. This wide variation reflects the different degrees to which Muslim practices have been accepted. Conceptualization of Diola religion upon a 'traditional versus Muslim' dichotomy is inappropriate and unnecessarily schematic.
