AA MISC.: Mazes Tame Bulls in Manhood Ceremony | Dimeca, Ethiopia

Gaito prepares the bulls for the jumping. Mazes like Gaito all live together in the bush, and their only job is to run bull-jumping ceremonies. When they marry they will get a dowry and perhaps some land, but at this time, they survive on the payments for bull jumping ceremonies. Mazes eat only milk, honey and meat. Once they marry their diet can change. This is also the period when a male knows his intended wife, but is free to be with any woman in the village who is not his betrothed.
