Meaning: the Bee symbolizes a strong sense of community and honesty and happiness. In the celebration of life ceremony, Bee dancer play an important role. They usually are busy roaming around, trying to amuse people, dance around other dancers and try to catch, touch and then sting them. It is not meant as a threat, rather a play and after another dancer has been stung, he/she will be compensated with a little gift. The bee masks are easy recognizable, always showing spikes on their face.
