You’d never see this side of Mexico in the media

The images pieced together in the news — of corruption, poverty, violence and crime — are grim, but they don’t capture the full, textured reality of life in Mexico. As there are approximately 33.7 million Mexican-Americans living in the United States today, it is worth thinking more about what the country looks like beyond the headlines.

African ethnic group of the week: the Temne people (Sierra Leone)

Temne belongs to the Niger-Congo language family. Sometimes it is also called Themne,Time,Timene, Timmannee, and Temen.Taking into account the meaning of theterm, “an old man himself, however “Temne” is preferred to the other spellings.Temne has a wide variety of dialects such as Banta, Konike, Yoni, Bombali, WesternTemne(Pil), Sanda, Ribia,Kholifa, Koya, Masingbi, and Malal. Despite a relatively low percentage of lexical similarity between dialects, people claim to understand all the dialects.

Temne peope’s  second name indicates the patrician (s. abuna ) with which she or he is affiliated. There are twentyfive to thirty such patricians. The names are mostly of Mande origin and are also found among several neighboring ethnic groups. Most patricians have alternative names, and each is usually geographically concentrated, resulting from isolation during migration. In general, however, Temne patricians are dispersed and are neither ranked nor exogamous. Each patrician has several totems—usually of animals, birds, fish, or plants—and prohibitions on seeing, touching, eating, or using that vary considerably from one area to another. Penalties for violating a prohibition are mild, and many adults do not know what the prohibitions are until a diviner diagnoses the cause of a misfortune. Early sources and some contemporary Temne indicate that a common patrician bond was formerly of significant social importance, but that is not the case today. Each patrician consists of smaller, localized segments or patrilineages, each of which is comprised of a number of (usually extended) families, each of which in turn usually forms the core of a household. Temne kinship terminology is the type that Murdock calls “Eskimo,” in which mother’s brothers and sisters are not differentiated terminologically from father’s brothers and sisters. In discourse, seniority is indicated more often than laterality. A person is usually closest to and receives most assistance from his or her own (father’s) patrilineage, but often ties with the mother’s patrilineage are nearly as important; Temne speak of their mother’s patrilineage as their “second line of help and protection.”

To be married is strongly desired by adult Temne, especially in the rural agrarian context, where subsistence is very difficult for a single adult, especially if that adult has children. In the traditional Temne marriage system, bride-wealth, comprised of consumer goods and/or money, passes from the groom’s kin group to the bride’s and/or to guardians and is subsequently distributed more widely. The exchange of bride-wealth and dowry or counterpayment seals the transfer of rights and obligations from the bride’s father/guardian; this transfer marks a true marriage from other forms, which may be equally permanent but not as acceptable to the kin groups concerned.

The traditional Temne creator-High God is Kurumasaba, who, in judging the Temne, is thought to be kind, generous, just, and infallible. Kurumasaba is never approached directly, only through patrilineal ancestors as intermediaries. These ancestors also judge their descendants. Sacrifices are offered to them to obtain help for the living. Various nonancestral spirits, some regarded as good and helpful, others as mischievous and even vicious, also receive sacrifices and make agreements to help or—at least not to harm—the living. Temne also believe in witches ( rashir ), individuals, both male and female, who can make victims fall idle, have an accident, or even die. The identity of a witch may be determined by several divinatory techniques and, once identified, can be countered by magical medicines. Especially useful are “swearing medicines,” which bring illness and death to an identified witch, thief, or other target. Borrowings from Islam and Christianity have altered many traditional beliefs during the twentieth century.
