The Stanley Museum of Art welcomes Dr. David A. Binkley who will discuss the profound influence of Kete cultural and artistic practices on the Bushoong and other Kuba-related peoples. This includes Southern Kuba initiation rites, funerary practices, and masking traditions, which were established by the indigenous Kete prior to the migration of the proto-Bushoong into the region and their eventual rise to a regional power in the seventeenth century.
