Colour photograph of 'Na'nalalał – Weather Dance mask shot against a black background

During this dance, the female performer covers and uncovers her face to represent the break of dawn and twirls around to represent the wind. There are two versions of this dance, the other is performed by males and is called the ‘Na’nakwalał. This set of Weather Headdresses here represent mosquitoes.
