History Of Use

Stools are considered the personal, private property of their owners. They are part of a man's accessories. Each man has a stool which reflects his age and status. Stools are inherited and named to reflect the clan and status of the owner. Stools serve as seats which protect the owner from insects, etc., and are used in ceremonial contexts. At night they protect their owners' headdresses.
