E 1.60: Maidens perform the reed dance, a traditional ceremony to honor the Queen Mother of this small mountain kingdom. The dates of the umhlanga reed dance are determined by the moon cycle, and only childless, unmarried girls can take part. This stamp was issued to commemorate the 40th anniv. of Swazi independence.
