The blade is made of copper and the handle is decorated with metal inlays. The Kubas are a Central African people established in the center of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Organized into a kingdom, the Kuba are known for their statuary art and their textiles and speak a Bantu language. Organized into a kingdom, the Kuba are known for their art of masks and their textiles. They speak a Bantu language and are composed of many subgroups occupying Kasai. Kasai refers to a vast region in the heart of the Republic, inside the immense curved course of the Zaire River. This large region comprises two administrative divisions: Kasaï Oriental and Kasaï Occidental. The Kuba, located in what is now the savannah and forest region of Kasaï (between the Kasaï and Sankuru rivers), is said to have been founded by a population related to the Mongo of the forest who came from the mouth of the Congo. This people, first organized in a federation of chiefdoms, which initially knows only hunting, fishing and the cultivation of millet and bananas would have been dislodged from its territory of origin by the Jaga in the 16th century. The variety and number of tribes occupying the two Kasai are familiar to lovers of African art: they are the BaKuba, Bena Lulua, BashiLele, BasSongye. The BaLuba dominate Kasaï Oriental, where they are more numerous than in the province of Shaba. The Kuba are artistically the most prolific group in Western Kasai. The name of Bakuba is given to a group of tribes which constitute a centralized kingdom and this since at least the XVI th century. The central pivot is the tribe of the Bushoong (Bashi Bushoong). It is the tribe of the king and the customary center of the country. The Bushoong (or Bushong, Boshongo) are established in the Kasaï-Occidental region, near Dekese and north of Ilebo. The other major tribes gravitating around the central power of the Bushoong are: BaShoowa, Bangongo, Bangeende, Bapyaang, Bakete. Each of these ethnic groups has its own history and art. The Kuba Ngeende are very close to the Bushoong and compete with very refined arts, skilfully made. The Bangongo are best known for an architecture adorned with learned designs. These structures have now almost disappeared. They inspired the royal art of the Bushoong in many ways. The Bashoowa, located on the lower banks of the Sankuru River, are one of the best known Kuba tribes, mainly for their refined art of weaving and velvet embroidery known as Shoowa or Kasai. Paradoxically, she stayed away from ethnological research for a very long time, and it was only very late that her embroideries were allowed to enter museum collections. Their statuary is influenced by the neighboring style of the Ndenguese. The BaKete appear to be a very old population, part of which was annexed by the BaKuba and another by the BaLuba. Their ancient kingdom split into two geographically separate groups, of which only the northern one remained in the Kuba movement. This Bakete pocket is located around Kakenge.
