With specially designed short training stilts sized for children, this hands-on workshop is an elementary introduction to the traditions of Moko Jumbie, a stilt-dancing spirit of the forest.

Moko Jumbie is a "diviner" figure rooted in African heritage who wears colourful garb and a carnival mask, watching over his village and able to foresee danger. Originating as a secret society of village guardians, Moko Jumbies are now featured in cultural presentations around the world, inspiring awe and wonder.
