The Kankouran in the Casamance

The Kankouran seen parading about in front of the Diedhiou family's compound in Sedhiou 

The Kankouran plays a role in the initiation of young men in the Mindinka culture. The costume is made from a tree having an interior, deep red, fibrous bark.

Boubacar showing us the bark from which the Kankouran's costume is made.
