What is Kaman?
The word Kaman in Dinka means Visitor. Therefore, Kaman’s Day or Visitor’s Day is the day of recognizing the importance of Kaman or visitor(s) in our society. It’s a day of inviting visitor (s) whether a child, neighbour, in-law, boyfriend, girlfriend, and friend for special dinner or party. Kamaan or Visitors are part of our lives.
They give us joy when we’re sad, they help use when we’re in trouble, and they provide information we need. Our ancestors had precious love for Kamaan (visitors). Kaman (visitor) would get the best services such as accommodation, delicious food (a bull or goat can be slaughtered), clean water and had to be entertained before s/he goes to the bed.
