From 1987 to 2006, the Lord’s Resistance Army, led by Joseph Kony, terrorised communities in northern Uganda. Since the departure of the LRA to the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and Southern Central African Republic around 2006-2007, many communities have been struggling to rebuild not only their physical homes, but to try and re-establish communities and traditions torn apart as families and villages were fractured, robbed of elder members, and dispersed to camps across Northern Uganda. Amongst one community, dance has become one means of remembering shared identity and tradition. This photo essay by Richard Stupart highlights the story.
