Makonde passage rites, beliefs and wood carvings are closely related to each other.   The most important initiation ceremony in Makonde culture is boys circumcision. The main role is played by the Mapiko dance, where the dancer wears the Mapiko mask, the personification of the evil the boy has to fight.
