🎭 Fun fact: Every 60 years, Mali’s Dogon people host the Sigui festival, aligning with the star Sirius’s celestial position. This masked celebration signifies the transmission of cult secrets across generations. Lasting several years, initiates learn a secret language, craft a massive Great Mask, and partake in a time-consuming dance procession from village to village. The next Sigui is set for 2032, connecting the Dogon’s cultural legacy with the brilliance of the “Dog Star,” Sirius.
