Correction: in the previous post, it was reported that the ceremony that took place on Sept. 28, 2014, with Ob. Gadaa Gabra-aab was Hururssa [Name-Giving Ceremony]; however, it was Moggaasaa [Naturalization into the Oromo Nation]. We thank those who corrected us.
At the Moggaasaa ceremony, Naturalization into the Oromo Nation, held in conjunction with the 2014 Washington-DC’s Irreecha celebration, author Tasfaayee Gabra-aab has become “Gadaa” Gabra-aab; watch the ceremony below (video by OPride.com). Moggaasaa (and also Hururssaa) are two of the rich traditions of the Oromo nation.
