HOME Cotton Tree becomes a cultural centre Freetown's giant cotton tree, national symbol of Sierra Leone and a landmark in the capital, is also the address of the National Museum which tells the story of the history and culture of the country - particularly the influence of the formidable Mandinka warrior kings. The story goes that the tree started life as a young sapling when settlers came to Freetown in 1787. Amongst the most interesting exhibits in the museum is a copy of the De Ruyter stone which, in 1948, was proclaimed one of Freetown.s oldest monuments. It is buried six inches under the ground just above the high water level at Jimmy market place. This was the spring known to all mariners as on of the best watering places of the west coast of Africa and is inscribed with the names of famous sailors.

A Truth and Reconciliation Commission, chaired by a church elder, began sitting in the country mid April. The second of such in Africa, it is expected to promote the healing of long lasting wounds created by extreme acts of violence on humanity a few years ago. Joyce Mulama, reports.
Sample this: A woman with a child strapped on her back is ambushed by rebels. They grab the child, hit it several times against a tree, and throw it into a nearby bush. With the mother is her brother, who tries to intervene, but in retaliation, the rebels slit open his throat, tear off his body and reach for the heart. As if that is not enough, they order her to eat it raw or face death. When she resists, they take her into their camp and gang-rape her. Sounds like fiction, but such, and many more, were the atrocities committed on the innocent people of Sierra Leone, during a nine-year civil war that commenced in 1991.

CULTURE The most outstanding feature of the country's cultural life is its dancing. The Sierra Leone Dance Troupe is internationally known. The different communities of the nation have their own styles of costume and dance. In addition, certain closed societies, such as the Wunde, the Sande (Bundu), and the Gola, have characteristic ceremonial dances. A wide range of agility, gracefulness, and rhythm is displayed; in addition, there are elements of symbolism in most of the dances. Drums, wooden xylophones (called balaphones), and various stringed instruments provide the musical background. The carving of various wooden masks in human and animal figures for the dances is especially advanced in the southern region. The Sande mask worn on the head of the chief dancer during the ceremony attending the reappearance of the female initiates from their period of seclusion is perhaps the most well-known carved figure in Sierra Leonean art. It is a symmetrically stylized black head of an African woman with an elaborate plaited pyramidal coiffure adorned with various figures and with a facial expression of grave dignity and beauty. Ivory figures are characteristic of the Sherbro, Bullom, and Temne peoples of the coastal and northern regions. Fine examples of these figures, which were bought or commissioned by Portuguese traders during the 16th century, are still extant. There are also steatite human figures, sometimes distorted, called nomoli, or, in wooden form, pomtan (singular, pombo), which certainly date earlier than the 16th century and were used probably for ancestor worship or fertility rites. At present, they are used for ceremonies to ensure abundance of crops.

In 1821, Sierra Leone was merged with The Gambia and the Gold Coast (now Ghana) to create the British West African Territories. Over the next 50 years, the British navy landed 70,000 slaves in Sierra Leone; the population of Freetown, the capital, was further boosted by the migration of indigenous tribes from the interior.

The RUF, led by Foday Sankoh, made considerable headway in the east of the country in the mid-1990s, overrunning a number of key mineral installations vital to the Sierra Leone economy. Sierra Leone called upon troops from its African neighbors as well as military assistance from South Africa and the UK, but the country had begun an inexorable slide into chaos.
