African Masks and Tribal Art of the Dan People of the Ivory Coast and Liberia

The Dan people have inhabited the Ivory Coast and Liberia since the eighth century B.C. A loose confederation of villages totaling some 350,000 individuals, the Dan spent much of their history battling neighboring tribes and sometimes each other. This has given them the reputation as  ferocious fighters, as each Dan warrior sought "tin": individual prestige or glory in battle. The encroachment of colonial powers, and increasingly centralized control has made tribal conflicts less common. Today's Dan warrior finds his tin through other pursuits. Unity was finally brought to the Dan people with the institution of the Leopard Society or "Go" in the late 1800s.
