Beads are worn by gender, age, marriage and the clan of the tribe. Young men wear beads to show they belong to a certain age. Men born in the same decade are considered as same age group and wear similar necklace. The necklaces worn by women show a significant information about their marriage status, the dowry they received and the interests they have. When a girl's marriage is arranged, one of the first things that the Mother does is make an engagement necklace for the bride to be. A wedding necklace is also made showing the map of their community in a collar shape. The color of the beads is also carefully chosen based on the event. Blue symbolizes sky, red symbolized blood, green symbolizes earth, orange symbolizes friendship, yellow symbolizes fertility, white represent health and black means unity.
