In August, Cooperative Ikora Imigongo was visited by guests from America. The leaders of GoEd, a study abroad organization from several schools in the States, brought 10 college students to Kaziba Village for a day of imigongo. The guests wanted to know the art of imigongo and asked many questions of the artists on how they got started making the art. The artists then taught the students the process — first to shave the wood, to glue the frame together, to draw with charcoal, to measure, to put cow dung, to sand and finally, to paint. The artists also prepared a Rwandan meal for the guests, including plaintain, cassava, beans and sweet potatoes. Even the students participated in the cooking process. They peeled sweet potatoes and plantains, and watched how Rwandans cook over the fire, in a makeshift kitchen created from banana tree trunks and rocks. Everyone, the cooperative and the students, were very happy to have had the chance to learn and to teach one part of Rwandan culture. Look at our pictures from the day!
