Kambari woman working pestle and mortar

Leaving Kontagora in the early morning, we drove towards a Kambari / Kamberi settlement near Genu. The road quality became progressively and we finally abandoned our vehicle at Genu and walked the rest of the way to our destination.

We camped for a night with the Kambari: in the afternoon of our arrival we twice walked the surrounding area, meeting
its inhabitants and leanring of their culture. The following morning we had a third opporuntity to explore and observe before starying our walk back to Genu and the vehicle.

The Kambari are an ethnic group that are much smaller than Nigeria's well known Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo/Ibo. Their belief system is usually referred to as animist (the region around Kontagora in northwestern Nigeria predominantly follows Islam) and many live in villages and settlements some distance from the main roads. Many of the women maintain their traditional style - jewelry, tattoos, brightly coloured textiles (and unlike their neighbouring cultures, they frequently do not cover their upper bodies when in their villages) - a trait that was less apparent among the men. They live off agriculture and sell their produce also to neighbouring towns and villages. The most popular crops produced are corn, millet, peanuts, beans, and rice. Nearly all of the locals keep chickens and goats for meat while the richer ones have cattle.

Dakar - Niger Railway. Bamako Mali to Dakar Senegal Train Ride April 1995 West African Iman

This remains one of my all time favorite images. Where ever you move this mans eyes will follow.
I sat next to this man for 40 hours on a train from Bamako in Mali to Dakar in Senagal.

The story behind this photo is interesting. A girl was thrown off the train because she did not have sufficient money for the ticket and was in tears on the platform surrounded by her baggage. So I donated some US dollars to get her back on the train. Through an interprator the man said that was a kind thing I did and he said I could take his picture. In that part of the world a lot of people do not like their photographs taken. This man was as clean and tidy when he stepped off the train. He was a teacher.

I would love to give the man a copy of his picture.
