Are there traditional communities that have rituals celebrating (or otherwise marking the occurrence of) a girl's first menses? If so, what do those rituals look like?

(For purposes here, let's define a "traditional ritual" as something invented before 1920.)

Just seems like a kind of random question to me. (Interesting, though, so you get my +1 [or you will tomorrow... I've reached my vote limit for today].) –  Daniel Aug 15 '13 at 21:26
