Scope and Contents:
Original accompanying Léon de Sousberghe caption reads, " Plate-forme de la danse "Kita" Mukelenge près de Nianga." Translated original accompanying caption reads, " The village dance floor near Nianga before the performance "Kita" Mukelenge."
The Central Pende performers of the Mingelu and Mapumbulu generations privileged the celebratory dances associated with the women's health rituals. These rites (Khita, Gimbanda, Khula, Kanvumbi) were organized around a period of rest and seclusion for the woman. Overseen by women, these rituals were serious and treated the ailing woman like an initiate to a secret society. At its conclusion, her husband or maternal family was obliged to mark her recovery by throwing a party similar to the coming-out ceremony for initiates to the men's fraternity.
