Biographical / Historical:
Cardinal Charles M. Lavigerie, the Catholic Archbishop of Algiers, founded the Society of Missionaries of Africa which became known as Pères Blancs in 1869. Beginning a plan of expansion in 1878, Lavigerie sent a group of missionaries across the Sahara to establish a mission in Timbuktu, but the efforts failed when the accompanying Africans revolted. Over 23 missionaries died before the mission was completed in the 1890s.

The Pères Blancs also established themselves in Uganda, Tanganyika (now Tanzania) and the Upper Congo by the 1880s. Despite resistance from local chiefs and governments, the society continued to expand in the first part of the 20th century, setting up hospitals; elementary, normal and technical schools; and seminaries in Africa, as well as training schools in several European countries. After World War II the society's influence declined, although it still operates today.

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 was on assignment for Westinghouse Film and traveled to Africa from October 26, 1970 to end of March 1971.
