Kendwi at Tokpombu

Location: Tokpombu in Nongowa Chiefdom [Kenema District]
Date: circa 1969
Nearing the end of the Bundo initiation the Kendwi masquerade was carried around the village by the Bundo Society women. The leader of the local Bundo Society, Mama Hokey Kemoh, is seen to the right in the background with the green headdress and orange docket. The Kendwi seemed to mark the end of a successful Bundo season.
