Iteso Tribe of Eastern Uganda
The Iteso live in eastern Uganda in the districts of Soroti and Kumi. Some are in Palisa and Tororo districts.
Previously, parents could arrange the marriage for their children even without their knowledge. However, the boy could directly consult the girl. If the girl consented, she would inform her mother and secretly move away to start staying with the boy. Whenever the girl?s clan noticed this development they would complain about the illegal manner in which their daughter was being used. Arrangements would then be made and a date would be fixed on which the delegation from the boy?s clan would come to the girl?s family for an introduction. Arrangements for the payment of bridewealth would be made. In other cases, the boys would approach the girl and tender his wish to marry her. He would then come with a delegation to the girl?s family for the introduction. The relationship would then be formalized by paying bridewealth. A traditional wedding would follow.
