Legend:

Here we see the people on their way home, the Elders close to the young men, while the women are maintaining a distance according to tradition. The three women in front are in a happy mood. The older one is holding a broom, calling out: "eu ... eu ... eu ... lili ... lili ... lili ... ngwakwana ka ... ngwakwana ka ... khutŝi ... khutŝi ... khutŝi ... Pŝhagaa ... Pŝhagaa", until arrival at home.
