Homecoming.jpg

Homecomings were family oriented—everyone belonged, or had their place, including babies, children, and the elderly, men and women. The celebration was a time and place for reaffirmation, reinforcement and renewal; it was a time of belonging. The communal spirit was evident in the ways members of the community fellowshipped with each other, greeting the familiar and unfamiliar with jubilance and warmth, as often with hugs as with handshakes.
