Taboos for us!

Looking them in the eye; they say is disrespect!

Talking while standing should definitely never happen

Adultery will get us banished

Adultery will get them praises!

Never talk while they are talking; so they say…

To speak up is to become a man!

To be firm is to disrespect

Taboo to marry from that tribe

To reject him is to disrespect them

Taboo to eat such and such

Taboo to want to…

Taboo to be able to…

Taboos for us

Taboos by them!
