Dogon Mask Dancers Biggest Job
Dogon mask dancer is nervous for the first time in twenty-six years
For the newly departed is his favorite grandfather, mountain deer man.
He has not done a mask dance for a loved one prior to this moment.
The tribe is waiting, their eyes trained on each grimace and movement.
Ease to the underworld in the best way he pleads to his grandfather.
Mountain deer man stirs from motionless state to watch his grandson
He has never experienced this level of pride.
