Talk:Clan Kroker's sacred birthing grounds
Name and ownership
There are basically two big puzzles regarding this particular place. First of all, I want to take the ownership part.
I may be incorrect here, but I do not recall Kif specifically mentioning it being his clan's grounds, but rather his species grounds. I am going to assume that the Amphobisians have several clans, who all share the same birthing grounds.
Now, if that is true, then using the same grounds for weddings (fon fon rubok) and funerals seems not only inappropriate, but also - you know - sort of a waste of efficiency. My assumption would be that these are three different places. Or at least, the funeral might be in the same place. The Grand Midwife does mention that she will return him to his origins.
Anyway, somewhat complicated questioning. Hope it made sense. --Svip 10:53, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
- He calls them his family's birthing grounds while the Grand Midwife/Funeral Director/etc mentioned he was of the Clan Kroker. It is not a big leap, but it is a leap to say it is not the sacred grounds of several families. However it is a bigger leap to say it is the grounds of the entire species. While the wedding was possibly somewhere else I'd say the other events were in the same place. These grounds may be equivalent to a church; local religious folks go to the family church to get married (rubok), have a funeral
or give birth. - Quolnok 11:16, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
