African staffs of office have many roles and functions, as symbols of office and as metaphorical extensions of the hand. But for Luba people, staffs also function as visual records of the details of family history, migration, and genealogy. High-level office holders carry staffs to public proceedings and perform historical recitations to honor ancestors and teach their descendants about family ties to Luba kingship. The word “kingship” cannot accurately portray the true nature of Luba royalty, which was based on the duality of the sexes.
