Lictenstein states that "among the Koossas, (a nation of
South Africa,) there are certain prevailing notions
respecting moral [ceremonial] uncleanness. All children are
unclean till they are admitted among grown-up persons (which
happens with the males through the various ceremonies
attending circumcision); all lying-in women are unclean for
the first month; all men who have lost their wives, for a
fortnight, and all widows for a month; a mother who has lost
a child, for two days; all persons who have been present at a
death, the men returning from a battle, etc. No one may have
intercourse with such an unclean person, till he has washed
himself, rubbed his body with fresh paint, and rinsed his
mouth with milk. But he must not do this till after the
lapse of a certain time, fixed by general consent for each
particular case, and during this time he must wholly refrain
from washing, painting, or drinking milk."
