Few body maps present entire communities as accepting former underage combatants and instead depict a more complex and sometimes piecemeal acceptance. The Mahagi participants’ body map depicts a scenario where the community shuns a former underage combatant, who is shown trying to enter the community (a figure on the outskirts with an arrow leading to the village).
