In Benin, physical disabilities were traditionally associated with specific functions at the palace. Little people were assigned roles as oral historians, entertainers, and were present for specific ceremonies and rituals surrounding childbirth, circumcision, and fertility rites. They were also assigned duties such as caring for ancestral shrines and providing information to the Oba.
