Teacher's Guide - Bantu Migration - African Kuba Mask Details

This reusable guide covers 3000 BC- 1000 AD and focuses on the Great Bantu Migration. It is to be used in conjunction with the African Kuba Mask (EDU 001). Masks have been an important part of African society for thousands of years. African masks are spiritual symbols that have ritual, social, and artistic functions in the community. They are used during ceremonies, celebrations, initiations, crop harvests, marriages, war preparations, hunting, funerals, and burials. Masks were usually worn by a chosen or initiated dancer of the community or village. They represented certain deities, spirits of ancestors, mythological beings, and animal spirits. It was believed that a mask transformed the wearer into the entity it represents. The ceremonies served as a means of communication between past and present, humans and nature. Art In History’s replica resembles a mask made by the Kuba people. The Kuba were one of many groups that made up the Bantu Kingdom during 4,000 years of migration across the African continent.
