In Bedik culture, if there is an iniation on Wednesday, the girls go to fetch water. Before, this was done on the mountain, there were water points, but now with climate change, it is difficult to find water in Ethiouar, they are obliged to go down to fetch water, and come and do the cultural practices at the top of the mountain, i.e. give water to wash the young boys, wash the children. This is what used to happen, now they have to go down the mountain. This is an example of climate change, and of how communities adapt to preserve traditions, cultures, which are very important for human beings. The song you hear in the video is simply a song to give each other courage to carry water. They are racing with the young boys who have gone into the bush to see who will get to the public square first.
