Occupying the border region between Cameroon and Gabon, the Bule form part of the Fang group and live not far from Bakwele, with whom they share cultural similarities. They practiced a ngi ritual against sorcery, in particular, against poisonings. Ngi is the gorilla, a fearful animal, with whom the candidate identifies after he has been accepted into the association.

Most of their masks are in the form of a human face, some with horns. They have geometrically formed human heads, mostly colored white and black.
