Subject: RE: blacked up morris dancers abused in uk
My friends Peter and Alison travel the world to follow traditions and I was sure they once mentioned a whiteface tradition in the Caribbean. Took me a while to find but here it is!
I think they are masks though and, like border Morris, I see no evidence of parody.
Thought it was interesting anyway.
