The Renunciation Ceremony is the ceremony climate refugees from Arizona, Nevada, and Utah must undergo before they are allowed to join the Zomer community. They must exorcise their memories and accept the Zomer animist religion.
The women dressed in white are THE INITIATES. THE MUSICIANS represent the 12 houses of the Zomers.
