I learn something new all the time in this village.
@Ka-Buda ,what does it signify in our culture?
This bone is from the upper end of the goat's or sheep's front arm (guoko).
Toboaring the hole signifies gratitude and in cultural superstitious belief it is suppossed to bring good luck to the giver and recipient of the guoko.
You've heard of terms like "gucokia guoko" etc...
The guoko is a very culturally important part of the goat in Kikuyu culture.

Tuiria umenye.

I think I will renew my library subscription and read about our cultures at length and pass down what I can to my kids.
