Description:Bogoŋ taboos and their explanations
Tubale Okuma is the oldest Bogoŋ-speaking man, seniored only by his own sister Mbadoŋ. In 2007 he claimed to be more than hundred years old. According to my own estimate, he is most likely a few years younger than that (this is based on the facts that Tubaale Okuma is the third child to his mother, and the last born from the same mother was born around 1939). He is an extremely knowledgeable person, a herbalist and - until a few years ago - one of the most senior priests in the traditional religion. His father was in his old age the Chief Priest. In 2006 he converted to Islam. He is the older brother of Nana Kwame Awiagah, Chief Priest of Bogoŋ.
Also known as Tubaale Nana Kwamine Ntaminasu. Moved to Nkwanta in 2006 and is probably next in line in the hierarchy of priests.
Born 1986. Chief of Mbowura (Juo Mbowura), Juoadigbe clan. Joined the project as research assistant in 2006. Key figure of Bogoŋ Documentation.
The son of Nana Kwame Awiagah (Chief Priest) and Akosia Daare
