Abstract: The author dwells on a particular aspect of traditional culture of Somali pastoralists that is the arbitration between contenders, knowns as "xeerka geedka", literally "the law of the tree" referring to the tradition meeting under a tree. He illustrates the participants; the crimes, the penalities; the camel as object to repair damage; the present situation relating to the justice system.
Qoraagu wuxuu maqaalkan kaga hadlayaa qayb ka mid ah dhaqanka raacatada Soomaaliyeed, gaar ahaan "xeerka geedka": dadka ka qaybgalaya golaha garnaqidda; xeerka ciqaabta; iyo xaaladda maanta taagan oo ah mid jahawareersan.
L'autore si sofferma su un aspetto particolare della cultura tradizionale dei pastori somali ovvero l'arbitrio tra contendenti, conosciuto come "xeerka geedka", letteralmente "la legge dell'albero" riferendosi alle tradizionali riunioni condotte all'ombra di un albero. L'autore illustra i partecipanti; i tipi di crimine, le pene; il cammello come risarcimento; e la situazione odierna relativa all'amministrazione della giustizia.
