Scope and Contents:
This photograph was taken by Dr. Marilyn Houlberg while conducting research among the Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria in 1970-1971, 1973, and 1975. At the time Dr. Houlberg was on a Kress Foundation Research grant and on a Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research grant.
Original title reads,"SL 15-22, Ikenne, 10/29/73, Mon., Egungun with head and red feather."
Publication title reads, "[Fig.] 13. Onidan Egungun depicting an Osanyin priest. He does ventriloquism with his puppet, an ebony tourist carving. Ikenne, 1973."
"Egungun ancestral masquerades in the Remo town of Ikenne perform the essential function of regulating the relations between the world of the living and the world of the dead. As representatives of the ancestors residing in the spirit world, Egungun masquerades at Ikenne make their appearance in two major contexts: the funeral and the annual Egungun festival. Since I have not witnessed the annual Egungun festival at Ikenne, the typology of Egungun masquerades that follows is based on observing the masquerades in the funerary context only." [Houlberg, Marilyn, 1978: "Egungun Masquerades of the Remo Yoruba." African Arts. 11(3)].

"The Wagenia derive their fame as fisherman from the way in which they have turned the opportunities offered them by their natural environment to account. At the point where they live, the river narrows considerably and drops in a series of rapids and cataracts over a several metres high, hard rocky ledge which appears above the surface here. A special attraction for tourists is the way the Wagenia manoeuvre their canoes through the rapids and the acrobatic feats they perform when emptying the conical, 2 to 5-metre long fish-traps suspended in the rapids from structures of thick beams. For the Wagenia master other techniques besides fishing with traps." [Droogers A., 1980: The Dangerous Journey, Symbolic Aspects of Boys' Initiation among the Wagenia of Kisangani, Zaire. Mouton Publishers, The Hague]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon visited the Boyoma Falls near Kisangani, Democratic Republic of Congo. He was on assignment in Africa for American Broadcasting Company,from early December 1966 to early February 1967.

"The Wagenia derive their fame as fisherman from the way in which they have turned the opportunities offered them by their natural environment to account. At the point where they live, the river narrows considerably and drops in a series of rapids and cataracts over a several metres high, hard rocky ledge which appears above the surface here. A special attraction for tourists is the way the Wagenia manoeuvre their canoes through the rapids and the acrobatic feats they perform when emptying the conical, 2 to 5-metre long fish-traps suspended in the rapids from structures of thick beams." [Droogers A., 1980: The Dangerous Journey, Symbolic Aspects of Boys' Initiation among the Wagenia of Kisangani, Zaire. Mouton Publishers, The Hague]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from March 17, 1970 to July 17, 1970.
