  • Moko Jumbie

    A moko jumbie (also known as "moko jumbi" or "mocko jumbie") is a stilts walker or dancer. "Moko" means healer in Central Africa and "jumbi", a West Indian term for a ghost or spirit that may have been derived from the Kongo language word zumbi. The Moko Jumbies are thought to originate from West African tradition brought to the Caribbean.

    A Moko Jumbie character may wear colorful garb and carnival masks. They also frequent festivals and celebrations such as Carnival.
