[12:16] Wongraven20 Resident: I look at all my sisters, the slight smile disappears from my face, well understanding the ceremonial and sacredness of the ritual that is about to unfold, and that has me as a subject too

[12:18] Wongraven20 Resident: within the circle, as indicated, approaching the En “My En ..” I say with a low tone
[12:19] Felicity Coronet nods as the Pledge approaches
[12:19] Felicity Coronet: What has now been three weeks, give or take a week, this Pledge Zula asked to become a Taluna of the Wa Ngao
[12:20] Felicity Coronet: I ask You now in the presence of the tribe if that is still Your desire Zula?
[12:21] Wongraven20 Resident: still in silence, i listen and i nod respectfully “Is totally my pleasure and desire, serve the Wa Ngao Tribe and whole my sisters group with all my Moyo, my heart and passion and skills the Ancestors gift to me my En”
[12:21] Felicity Coronet nods to Zula and then turns to Nasiha

[12:22] Loniki Loudon Smiles
[12:23] Felicity Coronet: In the time Zula has held the status of Pledge in Our tribe I have been impressed by Her dedication, Her abilities, and Her maturity. I too concur with Nasiha
[12:23] Felicity Coronet: As such, as is Our custom, I will ask You to speak the words of the tribal pledge which all before You have done.
[12:23] Felicity Coronet: It has GREAT meaning to Me personally and to Our tribe too
[12:24] Wongraven20 Resident: “Yebo my En… with all my soul i will”
[12:24] Loniki Loudon nods
[12:24] Loniki Loudon: Wendy would concur if she had been here, we spoke of this
[12:24] Felicity Coronet: I know She would too!
[12:25] Felicity Coronet: As We speak the words of the pledge, let Us all be reminded of what We say and how that binds Us together as a tribe
[12:25] Felicity Coronet: First, As a Wa Ngao I am true to myself.
[12:26] Wongraven20 Resident: ” I will play my role in the tribe to the best of my ability. I carry my weight in the tribe. Be it slave, Huntress, or En, I am the best I can be. ” i said with deep low tone
[12:26] Felicity Coronet: Second, As a Wa Ngao I am true to my tribe.
[12:26] Wongraven20 Resident: ” I will never disrespect my tribe. The honor of the Wa Ngao is great and I will never tarnish it willingly or intentionally.” i continue in the same sacral way
[12:26] Felicity Coronet: Third, As a Wa Ngao I will honor my Sisters.
[12:27] Wongraven20 Resident: i nod with decision ” Be them slave, Huntress, or En, I respect them all the same. Roles are stations in life or jobs but the Sisterhood transcends that. I would never do anything intentionally to make my sisters uncomfortable, embarrassed, or dishonored.”
[12:27] Felicity Coronet: Fourth, As a Wa Ngao I will honor my home.
[12:27] Wongraven20 Resident: ” The lands of my home are the homes of my sisters. Our homes are sacred and are respected. Our home provides shelter and sustenance. I will fiercely protect my home.” touching the zone of my heart i said
[12:28] Felicity Coronet: Fifth, As a Wa Ngao I will protect my heritage.
[12:28] Wongraven20 Resident: “Our past builds our future. Our future becomes our past in time. Our heritage reflects our honor on a third dimension.” said with all my passion and pleased to tell it
[12:28] Felicity Coronet: Sixth, As a Wa Ngao I will honor Gor.
[12:28] Wongraven20 Resident: ” I understand that what gor means to others is as important to them as it is to me. While I may not share every idea others may have, I respect their rights to theirs. I do not weigh my values above the values of others and will decline to judge.” I recite, with the heart
[12:29] Felicity Coronet smiles
[12:29] Felicity Coronet: And seventh, As a Wa Ngao I will build on the future.
[12:29] Wongraven20 Resident: “I understand that education is the basis of growth in general and not just personal. I will do my best to project a better understanding of myself, my tribe, my sisterhood, my home, my heritage, and Gor.” i repeat in he end, feeling my self exalted in this magnificent moment
[12:30] Loniki Loudon smiles
[12:30] Felicity Coronet nods and turning takes the bow and sheath from the great stone
[12:30] Felicity Coronet: She holds out the bow and sheath and continues to speak
[12:30] Felicity Coronet: Two fluids are essential for life
[12:31] Felicity Coronet: Without either one, a person perishes
[12:31] Felicity Coronet: One is water
[12:31] Felicity Coronet: The other blood
[12:31] Felicity Coronet: Such is also true with families
[12:31] Felicity Coronet: Two are required for a full and complete life. To keep from perishing
[12:31] Felicity Coronet: One is Our “Family of Blood”, those who We are bound to by birth
[12:32] Felicity Coronet: The Other is Our “Family of Water”, those We meet and bond with in Life
[12:32] Felicity Coronet: Two Families, both essential to a successful and happy life
[12:32] Felicity Coronet: Takes this bow and sheath as a symbol of that Zula
[12:32] Felicity Coronet smiles
[12:32] Felicity Coronet: We of the Wa Ngao welcome Zula into Our Family of Water
[12:32] Felicity Coronet: ***Wewtwewt ***
[12:33] Maluquete Resident: ***Wewtwewt ***

[12:33] Felicity Coronet: Welcome “Siater”
[12:33] Felicity Coronet smiles
[12:33] RJE Resident smiles warmly at her new sister
[12:34] Wongraven20 Resident: I watch her moving towards the stone, with the anxiety of a child … times gone by and renewed, and talk to me in this way, i stand and look at her amazed. Take the bow from her hands more like a relic than only an weapon … hug her with passion and i reply to the others “Asante asante ssters”
