the rainforest. Their Art is dark, primitive and as beautiful as their Forest. They are happy people and dance at
any occasion. Masked dancers, dance often on stilts. The round eyes are male masks, the thin eyes are female massks. The Masks can be male or female, but women never dance with masks.

Tubmans, a group of slaves set free by Augustan Richard Tubman in 1836. With the help of his widow, Emily, they traveled to Africa, where they settled in a colony that eventually became Liberia.
The Tubman people prospered in their new home, starting farms, churches and schools. And the grandson of
two of those slaves went on to become the nation's president, one of the most powerful black men in the world.
Won-Ldy-Paye - verhalenverteller
Won-Ldy Paye is a multi-talented artist from Tapita, in the northeastern region of Liberia, West Africa. He is a
member of the Tlo Ker Mehn, the class of professional Dan entertainers who are keepers of the oral tradition.
He was trained by his grandmother-Gowo to remember and retell the stories of the Dan people. As a child
Won-Ldy learned drumming, instrument making, dancing, wood carving, mask making, fabric dyeing, and mural
painting-the traditional arts and knowledge that nourish and entertain every Dan person. In addition, he studied reading, writing, and arithmetic-the skills he needed for the world beyond Tapita.
Geschiedenis van Liberia
Liberia, Africa's oldest republic came into existence as the result of treaties signed in 1821 between the
aborigines and the American Colonization Society (ACS). Under these treaties, freed black slaves from the
United States were to be resettled on this part of the African Continent along with 16 aboriginal tribes.
Following the signing of the treaties, the first settlers landed on the historic Providence Island in January 1822.
The settlers moved to the mainland where they settled along with subsequent groups of settlers of African descent including some people from the West Indies and the Congo.
