In eastern Kasai, much of the population was dislocated and disorganized as a result of the Arab incursions and the subsequent campaigns against them. At a very early date, an uprooted class, no doubt including many Baluba but also many others, took refuge around the European posts. Visiting Lusambo, Kasai, in 1908, Hilton-Simpson, a member of the Torday expedition, reported an "enormous" African population. A number of separate ethnic villages were grouped around the post; however," in addition to these, there is a very large mixed population of natives belonging to no particular village, who are generally termed Baluba by the white men of the Kasai, but who in reality belong to that tribe no more than to any other." These included the former Arab slaves, the uprooted, the outcasts, many of whom had no idea from what village they came.

Ceremonial axes are important symbols of Luba kingship. Possession of previously delegated symbols as royal canes, axes or bracelets, was important for any client chief or lineage wishing to be recognized by the Luba royal court. Such prestige items could be worn over the shoulder or carried in ceremonies that recalled the mythical origin of Luba kingship traced to the cultural hero Kalala Llunga, who is also believed to have introduced metalworking technology and hunting techniques.

"Post" - administrative or trading as the case may be - is the most appropriate name for the small settlements which are scattered throughout the country. Generally a post contains sufficient buildings to accommodate an administrative officer and such subordinate staff as he may have, a post office, and hutments for native police, native labourers, or perhaps a company of the Force Publique. There is usually a market for native produce and native dwellings. Most posts also contain a few stores oqned by Europeans.
The type of building found in these posts depends a good deal on transport facilities, and on what European building materials are available. If these materials are not obtainable, then grass must be used for tatching and mud for mortar.

Luba dance is another memory device. Mbudye society members perform spectacular acrobatics upon a king's or a chief's request, for occasions of state, to celebrate the rising of a new moon, for the initiation of new members, or during funerals, or political rallies. Mbudye dancing recalls episodes of the Luba origin myth, such as when the evil king Nkongolo tried to kill nephew, Kalala.

Scope and Contents:
Handwritten texts on verso contact print reads, " Lusambo. Baluba girl."
Judge E. Gorlia's first journey in the Belgian Congo from December 1909 to January 1912.
In eastern Kasai, much of the population was dislocated and disorganized as a result of the Arab incursions and the subsequent campaigns against them. At a very early date, an uprooted class, no doubt including many Baluba but also many others, took refuge around the European posts. Visiting Lusambo, Kasai, in 1908, Hilton-Simpson, a member of the Torday expedition, reported an "enormous" African population. A number of separate ethnic villages were grouped around the post; however," in addition to these, there is a very large mixed population of natives belonging to no particular village, who are generally termed Baluba by the white men of the Kasai, but who in reality belong to that tribe no more than to any other." These included the former Arab slaves, the uprooted, the outcasts, many of whom had no idea from what village they came.

Each house has its specific location into a larger enclosure, 'lúbànz' for the ordinary people, 'cihàng' for a chief. Chief's houses have a second wall and roof outside the first, forming in fact one house within the other.
