N'cwala

Each February, the Ngoni people of Zambia's Eastern Province celebrate the first harvest of the year with an N'cwala ceremony. Twelve local chiefs and their best dancers travel to a village called Mutenguleni to perform a warrior dance for the chief. The dancers wear outfits and headdresses made from animal furs. The chief chooses the best group of dancers. The villagers feast on beef stew and corn.
