In 1955 they were at Luebo, Congo. I also found a number of later references to the town/city of Leopoldville. Because some of these African figures and masks are unidentified, I've added this little bit of back story.
However, this figure is identified. I found this note referring to tribes when they were at Luebo.
Lulua tribe was the basic Luebo tribe but Baluba had come in from the east by the time we got there. Then to our north and east were the Bakete, a kind of subservient to the Bakuba from up Meshenge and Bulape way. To the southwest were the Bashilele but we never thought of them as neighbors when we were living at Luebo. When traveling to other stations there were the BasalaMpasu down Moma way.And, of course, the Baluba were dominant in the eastern part of our Mission territory. And Marc Poole used to fly up to visit and minister to a Pygmy tribe north of Bulape but I had no contact with them. Mom went with him one time.
