In this particular session, we will go into the story of how Women were the first to wear the Ẹ̀kú Egúngún Ancestral Mask and how it came about that men came into possession of it as it is today.The goal of this particular workshop was to complement our classes with instructor-moderated open dialogue on a specific topic.
