The small population of the Metoko live in the equatorial forest, where they make a living mainly through hunting. Masks are worn during the funeral of members of the Bukota brotherhood (with both male and female members who exercise political, legal and economic power), during initiation rites of the Bukota society, during healing rituals etc. This mask is relatively rare because the Metoko produced few masks. See sketch 100 Tribes in DRC by Felix.
