They had nine daughters

Gikuyu offered sacrifices to God who offered nine handsome men to marry them

Thus the Gikuyu community today

Once children were born they became living members of the community

The living dead

These are community members who died recently

Their physical appearance, behavior and character could still be remembered by the living members of the community

The ancestors

These are the community members who died long time ago

No living member of the community could recall them

Information about them is passed by the word to the next generation

They are important for they founded the clan

They are remembered in the history of the community


Ancestors and the living dead exist in form of spirit

Ancestors and the living dead influence the life of the living through dreams or visions

They are believed to be closer to God and therefore acted as mediators
