The photograph depicts Ntore dancers performing traditional Tutsi dance, on shore of Lake Kivu. Originally, the Ntore dancers were the pages of the Mwami court; they were all sons of chiefs or notables. The choreography consisted principally of warlike dances called the Ikumu (the lance), the Umuheto (the bow) and the Ingabo (the shield), in which the dancers carried real arms. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from early March 1951 to July 1951.

The photograph depicts Ntore dancers performing traditional Tutsi dance, on shore of Lake Kivu. Originally, the Ntore dancers were the pages of the Mwami court; they were all sons of chiefs or notables. The choreography consisted principally of warlike dances called the Ikumu (the lance), the Umuheto (the bow) and the Ingabo (the shield), in which the dancers carried real arms. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from early March 1951 to July 1951.
