CS9: Disturbing Tradition

a disturbing tradition
A Disturbing Tradition Part 1

You are trying to build rapport with a remote community and have been invited to an important ceremony which takes place only once a month. The ceremony involves a particular ritual that you find disturbing (such as circumcision or animal sacrifice). Attendance would signal true interest in the community and its practices and would win respect from important members. Avoidance would be an insult to the community and could jeopardize their involvement in your work. Should you attend this ceremony?
