"Lega men want to have many children, and for that reason they like to be linked with many wives in stable unions. Without children, a real marriage bond does not exist. Children offer economic and moral support and help to broaden the field of kinship relations." [Biebuyck D., 1973: Lega Culture. University of California Press]. During his trip to Congo (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Lega people at Shabunda and its surroundings in the Maniema district. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for American Broadcasting Company and traveled to Africa from early December 1966 to early February 1967.
