My name is rite of passage
A rite of passage is defined as: A ritual associated with a crisis or change of status for an individual. During the 20th century an Anthropologist by the name of Arnold Van Gennep studied different cultures and how they used different ritual ceremonies to celebrate the changes of an individuals. The ritual ceremonies were used to mark transitions from one phase of life to another. One ritual ceremony that seemed to be visiable in all cultures was sexual maturity.He proceeded to call these ceremonies “rites of passage”. Some examples of rites of passages are: birth, puberty, graduation,marriage,retirement, and death.
