The Yaure is a small tribe in the interior of Ivory Coast, but nevertheless they have succeeded in making a dramatic impact on West African mask culture. Traditional Yaure mask-making is some of the finest in Africa. Many of their designs and artistic ideas have been assimilated into Guro carving.

Yaure masks are thought to give the wearer super-human powers, known as "yu" in the Yaure language. This is a belief that the Yaure share with the Guro tribe. Yaure mask making is centered around the Je and Lo, the former being a celebration and the latter a traditional ceremony.
