Father Hermann Gufler M.H.M. has lived and worked in different parts of the Western Grassfields (North West Province) of Cameroon for more than thirty years. He established Sabongari Parish in Nwa Subdivision in 1987 after spending the previous two years at Wimbum (Tang) Parish of Tabenken (which included the whole of Nwa Subdivision). After five years of living and working in Nwa Subdivision, more or less constantly on the move, he was ready to do more serious and systematic research which he did with two principal local informants: Pa Monday Kongnjo and Pa Sam Kobuin. This volume collects together articles previously published in academic journals and some material unpublished until now.It presents an introduction to the rich ritual heritage of the Yamba people and seeks to make the fruits of Gufler's research available to the Yamba people themselves and to students of the Cameroon Grassfields.
