Kuba Woven Cap (Laket) MW61- D.R. Congo

$245.00
After a period of seclusion and instruction in the forest initiation camp, the initiates are presented to the community in festive dances as adult members of society. On these occasions they wear long woven raffia skirts, and the small conical hat (laket) designates their newly achieved adult status. For special occasions the wearing of the laket is still imperative. The cap is worn on the crown of the head and is held in place with a metal hat pin. #MW61
