Why Some Natural Areas Are Sacred? Lesson From Guji Oromo In Southern Ethiopia

Review Article of Global Journal of Arts and Humanities Why Some Natural Areas Are Sacred? Lesson From Guji Oromo In Southern Ethiopia Gemeda Odo Roba Current researches show that there are considerable sacred natural sites among Gujii Oromoo of southern Ethiopia. Nevertheless, the significant weight was not given to explore why some natural areas are sacred while others are profane. Hence, this article aims at addressing this question by exploring the traditional bases for classification of sacred and non-scared/profane land among Gujii Oromo in Adoola Reedde and Annaa Sorraa districts in Gujii Zone. Concerning methodological approach, methods of data gathering employed were in-depth and key informants’ interviews, transect walk and focus group discussions. The analysis of data was carried out through qualitative description and explanatory approach. The findings of the study demonstrate that dedication of some natural places to rituals of Gada system and adoring of waaqa in the area, are identified as the traditional grounds for sacredness of some natural sites. In addition, the symbolic connection of topographical features and agro-climatic condition with Guji cultural practices, on one hand and myths entrenched in the people’s tradition on the other are basic grounds for the classification of sacred areas from profane. Generally, some natural sites are sacred in the study area, not because of land’s unique feature or other aspects, but because of dedication to rituals in Gada system and worship of waaqa, symbolic implication of the area to Guji culture and related traditionally deep ingrained myths handed down from preceding generation.

Review Article of Global Journal of Arts and Humanities Melodic Intonation Therapy With Music Support in Patients With Aphasia of Expression Frexeira M1, Veras A.R.A.L2, Porto C.R3, Venâncio D.T. P4, Cordeiro L.G.F.C4, Silva L.G4 1Speech Therapist; 2Speech Therapist, Master, Phonoaudiology Faculdade São Miguel –PE; 3Students of the Speech-Language Pathology Centro Universitário de João Pessoa- UNIPÊ. Introduction: Aphasia is an acquired disorder of language processing due to brain damage, which can compromise expressive and receptive aspects. Music therapy can contribute both to the rehabilitation of the aphasic subjects’ linguistic abilities, facilitating verbal and non-verbal communication and strengthening neuropsychological functions, as well as modulation of emotions, improving mood and quality of life. Melodic Intonation Therapy (MIT) is a rehabilitation technique that proposes to develop verbal fluency and prosody by means of steps, in which sentences and prayers are used to produce the patient. Objective: Verify in the specialized literature the application and the efficacy of MIT with the support of music in patients with Expressive Aphasias, through selected articles. Methods: It was carried out an extensive research and articles published between 2011 and 2017, indexed in the data bases SCIELO, MEDLINE and LILACS, were selected. The following keywords were selected in portuguese: music, aphasia and expressive language. Results and Discussion: The MIT uses the supra-segmental aspects of speech, that is, of prosodic elements. In cases of expressive aphasia a function of the chant is preserved, because it activates the right cerebral hemisphere, which is the opposite side to an injury present in aphasic individuals. Thus, we verified that MIT adapted with the support of music, offer significant results in patients with aphasia of expression: improve in speech fluency, reduction of anomies, improvement in syntax of speech and dyspraxia of speech, and improvement of attention functions, memory of work, episodic-semantic verbal memory (recognition), prospective ...
