Ciciya festival of youth

At the Ciciya festival young men and women dress up in exotic costumes and perform spectacular feats of dancing.

For the Orisino division Ciciya is a part of Ukumbu, the last festival of the year held in December or January. Boys take part in this festival the year that they complete their Kezzeme initiation.

The Odipo division celebrate Ciciya as a stand-alone festival in August or September (unless the Caari official has died, in which case it will be combined with the Kezzeme).
