From the Publisher
Editors Note Seventeen years ago, Glen "Dragon" de Souza founded the Keylemanjahro School of Arts and Culture on the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean. The school's mission was to revive the almost-forgotten West African tradition of the Moko Jumbie, or "dancing spirit" and adopt stilt-walking into the annual Carnival celebration.
