They were 9 fire sticks representing the 9 families. All standing at a far distance around a massive pile of wood ready to be lit. Songs of animations were sung, calling on the different families.
As they respond to the call, they drew nearer to the heap of wood where they all converged and set a huge flame on it. Around it, they sang, clapped and danced. Ancestral tales were narrated and parables were told as they all sat feet crossed. Such was the atmosphere in the evening of the fire camp at the Grand Seminaire camps in Bertoua on the 26th of August 2021, during the ICT holiday Camps.
