Tchiwara (or Ciwara) is the name given to a crest-mask used by the Bambara from Mali, during rites of the Ciwara society, one of the six secret institutions that organise the Bambara society. Thanks to a wicker hat, it is placed on the dancers’ heads, who all belong to the Ciwara society. Dances of the Ciwara society are related to agrarian rites, and therefore, to fertility, fecundity and sowing.
