Stick Is Life

Moko Jumbies tradition is back to small Caribbean island of Trinidad & Tobago. Moko Jumbie is a Caribbean term for a stilt-walker; culturally it refers to an ancestral spirit.

In 2022, the full Trinidadian Moko Jumbie community came together, forgetting any conflicts, beefs or disputes between them, for first time, to share a jab circle with residents in Point Fortin—home of Trinidad and Tobago’s first known Moko Jumbie, Dexter Stewart. The jab circle is a space dedicated to bringing all Moko Jumbies together.
