Present in all of the kingdoms of the Cameroonian Western High Plateau (Bafut, Bekom, Big Babanki, Ndop, Oku...) the so-called Ngoin masks belong to sets of masks exhibited during commemorative ceremonies organised in the honour of illustrious deceased persons.

Each set, which is the property of a lineage in particular, can count more than 20 masks, usually in varied forms, but also in a repetitive aspect.

Some are obligatory, like the Kam (or Akam), a masculine mask which leads the dance, or even the Ngoin, which incarnates the first wife of Kam.
Other female masks can intervene, like the ones of the wives or daughters of Kam.
