Mask by Naomi Bebo
“Within many tribes, masks have and continue to serve an important purpose. Masks possess pluralistic function in their use for war, storytelling, relationship-building, and spirituality, to name a few. Masks are used in ceremonies to transcend place, time, and self-identity. Frequently, the masks are not masks at all but rather living and breathing entities…”  – Naomi Bebo
