Scope and Contents:
This photograph was taken by Dr. Simon Ottenberg while conducting field research in northern Sierra Leone within Bafodea Town, the capital of Wara Wara Bafodea Chiefdom, while on an Art Historical and Anthropological Field Research from October of 1978 through July of 1980.
Original title reads, "At Bafodea Town. Initiated boys just back from the bush. Their mothers dance also. Note their wood gongs, which at times they beat regularly, but not skillfully. Note their back pieces which contain charms.They are wearing the dress that they wore in the bush, made from white native cloth bands, dyed brown before going to bush, which are put on after their incision. Unlike their movements before they went into the bush, which were wild and acrobatic they here move in a very controlled way and when in front of the Bafodea Paramount Chief's house, in a line, signaling their submission to elders, society, etc. Also note that the colors are plain, compared to the bright colors they wore before they went to the bush for the circumcision and initiation of some weeks. But their locally knitted wool hats are bright. They move about town, as if to show off. They are very proud of having succeeded and will receive "dashes" from many persons." [Ottenberg field research notes, Limba Slides and Photographs, October 1978-July 1980].

Scope and Contents:
This photograph was taken by Dr. Simon Ottenberg while conducting field research in northern Sierra Leone within Bafodea Town, the capital of Wara Wara Bafodea Chiefdom, while on an Art Historical and Anthropological Field Research from October of 1978 through July of 1980.
Original title reads, "At Bafodea Town. Initiated boys just back from the bush. Their mothers dance also. Note their wood gongs, which at times they beat regularly, but not skillfully. Note their back pieces which contain charms.They are wearing the dress that they wore in the bush, made from white native cloth bands, dyed brown before going to bush, which are put on after their incision. Unlike their movements before they went into the bush, which were wild and acrobatic they here move in a very controlled way and when in front of the Bafodea Paramount Chief's house, in a line, signaling their submission to elders, society, etc. Also note that the colors are plain, compared to the bright colors they wore before they went to the bush for the circumcision and initiation of some weeks. But their locally knitted wool hats are bright. They move about town, as if to show off. They are very proud of having succeeded and will receive "dashes" from many persons."
