Anyone hear of this before? :think:



How an African tribe deals with crimes.
December 6, 2012

I was recently told of an African tribe that does the most beautiful thing.

When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days they’ll tell the man every good thing he has ever done.

The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as GOOD, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, happiness.
But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help.

They band together for the sake of their fellow man to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he’d temporarily been disconnected: “I AM GOOD”.

They look to recover that individual for the tribe. Here we focus mainly on punishing and an eye-for-an-eye perspective. One has to wonder how have we come to this.

Well, traditional law in isolated Africa is generally formed on village or tribal level. They practically do whatever they wish, so it might be possible. Although i've never heard for something like that in Africa. In most cases in isolated communities, the way is just the opposite...

Seems this is a Meme that started on 31 Jan 2001 on someones facebook. No source for the story. Too bad.
Nontheless an interesting 'ritual'. Can't say i heard it before. 'African tribe' is ofcoarse very general.

Edit: i find it hard to believe 6 people posted that on fb in 2001,. but hey google is always right, right?

If true, that's quite beautiful. I'm curious as to how they treat repeat offenders, and if there actually are repeat offenders. :think:

@Edgar and SC: that's why I asked. It seems the pattern around the world is that of exile and not deliberate re-inclusion, and the fact that the tribe wasn't named made it vague enough to sound like a hoax.

But I do really like the idea. :sunny:
