Oes Kinaalda Ritual Have Lasting Impact on Persons Identity?
I need to use a specific source (I will provide) as a primary and the only source for the essay and no other sources. The source is:
Markstrom, C.A & Iborra, A (2003). Adolescent identity formation and rites of passage: The navajo Kinaalda ceremony for girls. Journal of Research on Adolescence, 13, 399-425.
Points to discuss in the essay:
According to Markstrom and Iborra (2003), what is a rite of passage and what is the purpose of these types of rituals? What does the Kinaalda ritual involve and what is its purpose? Does a brief ceremony such as a Kinaalda ritual can have a lasting impact on a persons identity?
