Moko Jumbies Poster
The Conference on African and Afro-Caribbean Performance at the University in Berkeley, California, is long over (Sept. 26.-28.), but I just got the poster which used one of my Moko Jumbies (stilt dancers) images from Trinidad. Since the tradition of dancing on stilts came to Trinidad from West Africa, this was a perfect match for the topic of the conference. Look out for another Moko Jumbies image and their story in the Jan/Feb issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine, under 'Strange Planet'...
