#1000mokos

In 2017 Joshua Lue Chee Kong and Kriston Chen formed a Moko Jumbie group called #1000mokos in Trinidad and Tobago. Its objective is to build a community of stilt walkers through informal sessions that are accessible to anyone who wants to celebrate the history and the stories of the Moko Jumbies. The goal is simply to have fun walking. The name is inspired by the work of Jr. Bisnath and his goal of setting the Guinness Book of World Records for most stilt-walkers.
