Africa | Ntore dancers performing traditional Tutsi dance, on shore of Lake Kivu. Goma, Congo (Democratic Republic) | Originally, the Ntore dancers were the pages of the Mwami court; they were all sons of chiefs or notables. The choreography consisted principally of warlike dances called the Ikumu (the lance), the Umuheto (the bow) and the Ingabo (the shield), in which the dancers carried real arms. | ©Eliot Elisofon. 1972 African Dance, African Art, Congo Free State, Tango, Kenya, Belgian Congo, World Dance, Exotic Dance, Congo Kinshasa
