By Djanka Tassey Condé; David C. Conrad | Go to book overview

A VISIT TO KAMANJAN IN SIBI
Sunjata dressed in his ritual attire.(Na-amu)
He said, "My mother told me(Naamu)
4695That when I come to Manden,(Na-amu)
That her first blessing(Naamu)
Was that God should help me be on good terms(Naamu)
With any elder whose dalilu is greater than mine.(Naamu)
Fakoli, since you have settled,(Na-amu)
4700I say to you,
I say to Turama'an,(Naamu)
I say to Kankejan,(Na-amu)
I say to Tombonon Sitafa Diawara,(Naamu)
I say this to all the Simbons,(Na-amu)
4705Give me sixty men;(Naamu)
Let me go to greet Kamanjan.(Na-amu)
I must not go to war without doing that.(Naamu)
Let me go and greet Kamanjan,(Na-amu)
Because I esteem him above all other elders."(Naamu)
4710There was a distance of age between him and Kamanjan,
Because Kamanjan and his father Maghan Konfara had lived at the same time.(Naaaam')
Kamanjan never committed a shameful deed in his entire life.(Naaaam')
Anybody who commanded an army would seek the advice of Kamanjan.(Naamu)
Sunjata said, "Let us go and greet Kamanjan."(Naaaam')
4715He took sixty men and went to salute Kamanjan.(Naamu)
The place where he went to greet Kamanjan(Naamu)
Is the battle site near Sibi mountain, called Kalasa.(Naaaam')
They used to light torches for meetings at night,(Naamu)
