SYNOPSIS The Lozi people live on flood lands. Every year during the rainy season the water level rises up to the point where it is impossible to live on the land. And so, for the past 300 years, the Lozi people have practiced the Kuomboka ceremony, which literally means "get out of water". During the ceremony, the entire tribe board canoes and follow their king to his winter palaces and his home up on the hills.
