Mim Kut

Mim Kut or Maize Festival is usually celebrated during the months August and September, after the harvest of Maize. Mimkut is celebrated with great fanfare by drinking rice-beer, singing, dancing and feasting. Samples of the previous year's harvest are consecrated to the departed souls of the community.
