"The headdress shape conforms to Pende stylistic conventions: the bicorn headdress is said to allude to the strength and power of the buffalo in a reference to the associated powers of chieftancy. Among the Pende these headdresses are called ' Misango Mapende'." [Christine Mullen Kreamer, 1995: Spectacular Hats for Special Occasions. Crowning Achievements, UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History]. During his trip to Congo (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited Gungu and its surroundings in Kwilu Pende people's region.

Date:

Scope and Contents:
Kabalega Falls National Park was established in 1952. It occupies 1,483 sq mi (3,840 sq km) of rolling grassland. Its central feature is the Kabalega Falls on the lower Victoria Nile River. African Skimmer frequents rivers at low water, coastal lagoons, salt-pans, open marshes and lakes, being less common along coasts. It feeds on fish, foraging exclusively in the fashion characteristic of the family Rynchopidae, namely by skimming the water in flight with its mouth open and lower mandible submerged. Nesting takes place on sandy beaches and sandbars in rivers and islands in lakes. Egg-laying, in an unlined scrape, occurs from March to June in West and East Africa, and mainly from July to November south of the equator. The species migrates up and down larger rivers, and to and from inland lakes. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for American Broadcasting Company and traveled to Africa from June 1966 to early August 1966.

Scope and Contents:
Kabalega Falls National Park was established in 1952. It occupies 1,483 sq mi (3,840 sq km) of rolling grassland. Its central feature is the Kabalega Falls on the lower Victoria Nile River. African Skimmer frequents rivers at low water, coastal lagoons, salt-pans, open marshes and lakes, being less common along coasts. It feeds on fish, foraging exclusively in the fashion characteristic of the family Rynchopidae, namely by skimming the water in flight with its mouth open and lower mandible submerged. Nesting takes place on sandy beaches and sandbars in rivers and islands in lakes. Egg-laying, in an unlined scrape, occurs from March to June in West and East Africa, and mainly from July to November south of the equator. The species migrates up and down larger rivers, and to and from inland lakes. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for American Broadcasting Company and traveled to Africa from June 1966 to early August 1966.

Scope and Contents:
Several races of wildebeest (also called gnu) exist. The species that forms the large herds of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem of Tanzania and Kenya is known as the western white-bearded wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus mearnsi). The brindled or blue race occurs south of the Zambezi River; the eastern white-bearded race inhabits Kenya and Tanzania east of Gregory Rift. The head of the wildebeest is large and box-like and both males and females have curving horns. The front end of the body is heavily built, the hindquarters slender and the legs spindly. The coat is gray and has a black mane and a beard which may be black or white. Wildebeest occupy the plains and acacia savannas of eastern Africa. When there is enough food for wildebeests to remain relatively sedentary, herds form in the typical fashion of social ungulates: bachelor herds and territorial males with a group of females and offspring. The wildebeest's blunt muzzle and wide row of incisors are adapted for large bites of short grasses. Wildebeests are water dependant and grazing, trampling and manuring the grasses on which they feed stimulates new growth as long as the ground has sufficient moisture. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for American Broadcasting Company and traveled to Africa from June 1966 to early August 1966.
