Fady. Fady refers to taboos enforced by supernatural powers held in the culture of the Malagasy; the people of Madagascar. Some of these beliefs include describing a newborn as unattractive, not pointing at a tombstone, and pregnant women ingesting eels. When an up and coming business or entity is beginning, a ritual (joro) must be completed to prove that it isn’t fady. Those who break a fady are labeled as unclean and are accused of interrupting the spiritual harmony of their surroundings.
