In the previous post, I wrote about Ana Laura Cumba and her late father, Frederico da Almeida Cumba, who as régulo in the decades before independence was the most powerful African man in Chamanculo. After the jump (and thanks to Ana Laura’s generosity) you’ll find a selection of photos from the family album, most of them undated and uncaptioned. They range from the 1950s to the 1980s, though they seem to be concentrated in the 1960s and early 1970s. Some time ago, when I first published photos of Chamanculo from the 1960s, I said that images of that time and that place were rare. Once you start asking around, you find they’re not so rare–but they’re precious nonetheless.
