Email for shipping outside of continental US

The  Pende people who are mostly farmers in the Democratic Republic of Congo form about sixty little kingdoms, each comprising several clans and each headed by a chief whose main function is religious i.e. mediator with the ancestors who are the sources of health, fecundity and fertility. Even though the society is matrilineal, the sculptor’s profession is transmitted from father to son. The  Mbole get their name from their position vis-à-vie the river; “Mbole” means “the people from downstream”.The Mbole live in central DRC, on the left bank of the Zaire River. The women are involved mainly in cultivating manioc and rice while the men hunt.
