The African Mask Match Game

Most of us think of masks as a way to disguise ourselves, or something that is worn at Halloween. However, in the culture of Africa, masks are an important part of history and ceremony. Traditional masks symbolize the spirits of animals and people. Masks are worn by male dancers during celebrations, sometimes by chiefs and rulers when they make laws, and even by teachers as they tell young people about their history and traditions.
