Moko Jumbies

I know, I know, moko jumbies sounds like a good rum drink. They are, however, stilt dancers. Towering god/ghosts who watch over their villages and who can see evil coming from their lofty height. The origin of moko jumbies depends on whether you read Wikipedia the St Croix Visitors Info. They came from Africa, added in some Caribbean voodoo and some European religions and are now unique. However they came about, they're a blast to watch as they dance down the street or on the beach. The troop here preformed at the Jump Up last Friday night. I apologise for the dark photos, there were too many bright lights against a really dark sky. It was too much for my limited photo skills.





The top of an SUV is just the right height for strapping on the stilts.



                                            Next, getting into costume.



                                                             Dressed and ready to go.



                                                                  Chillin' with friends.





                          More waiting. Their eyes are kind of unnerving when you get close.




                                                             Taking a bow after the dance.
