The Norms, Culture & Traditions of the Moru People
Author: Roba Gibia
The objective of this book is to display the unique norms, culture, traditions, and customs of the Moru people of South Sudan. Thus, this book serves as the first documented reference for the lifestyle of the Moru community, their early beliefs, traditional rituals, informal education, communal activities, and the postwar contemporary Moru culture and traditions. It is a unique approach to enlighten and alert the Moru people that their rich culture, traditions, and norms, handed down by their ancestors, stand to disappear. It is a call for action to preserve this unique lifestyle of one of the indigenous South Sudanese African tribes.
