Tribe Information

About people of Ituri Foest

There are several small tribes that live within the vast Ituri Rain-forest of northeastern Congo. Some of those tribes include Ndaaka, Lese, beke, Amba, Baali, Mbo and more. Mask making plays a huge role in everyday life, representing ancestor spirits and used in elaborate initiation ceremonies. These masks become difficult to distinguish from one another so a general term 'Itur mask' is often used for masks from this region.
