Fang masks are used in secret societies. Men would wear the Ngil masks during the initiation of new members or when they were persecuted by crooks or enemies. Wearers of Fang masks were dressed in raffia dresses. Ceremonies took place at nightfall, while men wearing Fang masks danced a choreography, according to the sacred rituals, for a desired purpose. During this gesture, they were assisted by apprentices who would lighten them with torches, during their ritual.
