So to the people, Inua Yua said: “You must keep on singing and drumming. These things will keep you alive and will keep you from being afraid of Old Void.” And Inua Yua, together with all the others, taught the people how to make images of everything that could sing, so they could remember what life was about and how to keep it going. And how to have courage. So the people made masks and learned how to do this ceremony.

This is why we have masks that sing.
This is why we tell this story.
So we may remember.
So we may have courage.

This is the way it should be in our minds.
