Leisure Recreation and the Arts

Both sexes had abundant leisure time which was usually spent in mixed-gender family groups. Everyday leisure activities included bathing and playing in the river, grooming behaviors, story telling, singing, and sleeping or resting. In the evening after dark and in the early morning before dawn, men and women would often chat and/or sing, recounting stories of the past. Periodically, there were drinking feasts in which one household would be the host to members of their kindred who would come for several days of feasting, drinking tepw, and dancing. Such feasts were also opportunities for marriage ceremonies and for having extramarital or premarital sex with cross cousins (ki). Today, leisure time is spent in much the same way, although the feasts now usually also include volley ball and soccer tournaments as central activities.
