Divination is one of the tenets of Serer religion . However, only those who have been initiated as Saltigues (the Serer high priests and priestesses) can divine the future.   These are the "hereditary rain priests"  whose role is both religious and medicinal.

Outsiders, on the other hand, do have a choice. They may choose economic inferiority or social marginality, but the important point is that they choose their position. As Turner described it, they have opted out of the system (social structure), sometimes as a form of protest against the system in an attempt to change it, other times simply because they do not believe the system will ever change and thus refuse to function within it. Outsiders can also choose to rejoin the system at any time, and most, in fact, do. Take one of Turner’s favorite examples, the hippies: the hippie-turned-corporate-cog is such a common theme that it has become cliché. More often than not, it seems to be religious outsiders rather than political or social outsiders who remain outside the system.
The full title is actually. Dante Alighieri, Florentine by Citizenship, Not by Morals
