Tribe Information

About the Binji People

The Binji are a subdivision of the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are most well known for their masks which can be identified by the puffy cheeks and wide triangular nose. Many will also have tubular eyes or squarish eye sockets. Not much information can be found on the Binji people but it is believed they follow similar lifestyles as those of the Kuba, Kete and Bushoong peoples.
