In the west region of cameroon,precisely in BAKOU capital of a sub division of "HAUT NKAM"(BAFANG),the villagers there still worship or venerate skulls.According to them,this is the direct link between them and the departed ones.When a member of a given family dies,the delay of at least 5 years is given to the skull to be ready.Within this time,"THE TREE OF PEACE"is planted on the tomb,an the date for funerals fixed.On due time,the skull will be removed from the grave by initiated old men,and placed in the family'S HOUSE OF SKULL WHERE VARIOUS FAMILY MEMBERS CAN GO AND PRESENT THIER RESPECTS.
