African Masks

As part of our celebrations for Black History Month, Maple Class took part in an African Dan Mask making activity. We used Albezian wood, which comes from the fastest growing tree in the world! We were encouraged to explore its texture, smell and appearance. We learned about the 6 colours that African tribes use to create their Dan masks and their significance.

Red = Blood / War

Blue = Innocence

White = Spirit

Green = Earth

Orange / Gold = Fortune

Each child chose their own colours to represent their ‘tribe’ on their Dan mask.
