    The Marka are a Mande (Soninke) subgroup whose settlement region extends from the north of the Bamana (southwestern Mali), to the Senegalese border. Their elongated masks are often more or less completely covered with copper plates. Along the Niger the Marka use the masks in ceremonies related to fishing and farming.
