In The Heart Of My Very Own Journey

Goodbye Port Elizabeth and hello Queenstown. These two have just swooped me up ready for the next part of the adventure. Yana FayDzedze Ntsikelelo Nyaniso

A three day Xhosa ancestral ritual and naming ceremony. The two ceremonies happens over five days and brings together many families to help release and aid the healers in the tribe to move forward.

There will be a slaughter, traditional clothes worn and dances danced. Then this beautiful woman in the photograph will be given a name, ready to marry this beautiful man.

It is so fourtunate that this ancestral ritual has fallen in the heart of my very own journey, and I feel deeply moved to be a part of such an honouring.
