Activities Of Echoes the organization by helping to alleviate the great poverty and suffering of the peopleof burkino faso. These efforts should help the Dagara culture to survive http://www.schoolofwisdom.com/Malidoma/activities.html
Extractions: Echoes of the Ancestors has four main areas of focus: 1) Water Project Educational Economic Development ; and, 4) Personal Goods Contributions These page are a paraphrase of the group's successful application for 501(c)(3) tax exempt status with the IRS. 1. WATER PROJECT ACTIVITIES The efforts and plans of Echoes of the Ancestors water project together with the efforts of villagers in the Ioba Provence of Burkina Faso near the small town of Dano, has resulted in the development of three dam/reservoirs. These villagers are all members of an indigenous tribe of people known as the Dagara. These reservoirs consist of simple structures built with concrete and dirt against the flow of water. Echoes of the Ancestors plans on continuing to assist the Dagara in these activities as follows: (1) improve and maintain the three existing reservoirs; (2) construct water wells in the area; (3) construct additional reservoirs and wells in the Ioba Provence; (4) develop agricultural irrigation; (5) test and analyze the water and soils in the area; and, (6) develop a program of agricultural education utilizing the expertise of agricultural and water experts from the United Sates. Fund raising activities to support these future projects are also planned. All of these activities, and other activities of the group, are and will be under the supervision of Dr. Malidoma Somé, the President of

Extractions: To be published in Spring 1999, Censorship: An International Encyclopedia Les Maîtres Fous film by Jean Rouch (French anthropologist/film maker, born 1917), 1953-1954, 24 minutes Les Maîtres Fous (also known as The Mad Masters The Crazy Masters and The Manic Priest s), an anthropological film produced by the French anthropologist and film maker Jean Rouch during 1953-54, centers on an annual Hauka possession ceremony which took place near Accra, the capital of the then English colonial Gold Coast. La Chasse `a l'Hippopotame [The Hippopotamus Hunt] (1950), La Chasse au Lion `a l'Arc [The Lion Hunters] (1964), Moi, un Noir [I a Black] (1957), [Chronicle of a Summer] (1960), La Pyramide Humaine [The Human Pyramid] (1961), Jaguar Petite `a Petite [Little by Little] (1969). The events depicted in Les Maîtres Fous Les Maîtres Fous has generated controversy since its first screening in 1954 at the Museé de l'Homme, Paris. It has been both strongly criticized and enthusiastically extolled by Western and African audiences. It was banned in Great Britain and in Gold Coast after its release in 1955 and awarded best short film at the Venice Film Festival, 1957. This public ambivalence to the film has resulted from the reactions to arresting and graphic images and scenes, as well as to the social and cultural significance of the activities depicted within the film. The film opens with a brief explanation about the encounter between people from the northern and the southern regions and the discord created by the confluence of modern and traditional life in colonial Gold Coast. The film proceeds to portray Accra as a vibrant city where many groups and customs from West African have converged. This is the world the Songhay and Zerma must confront and adjust to as terms of their migration from their traditional homes in Niger, Mali, and Burkino Faso. Then we see Songhay and Zerma migrants performing a range of daily work activities in the city. It is from this local urban context that the film moves to the bush where we see the compound where the Hauka ceremony will take place.
The Funga culture the fungus in much the same way as the attine ants culture members of the Threespeceis were seen on the visit to burkino faso, T. (cf) medius, T. (cf http://www.mycokey.com/AAU/WestAfrica/Termitomyces.htm
Extractions: Termitomyces Termitomyces is a paleotropical genus of agarics intriguing both to mycologists and entomologists. As the name might suggest the species are considered obligate symbionts of termites belonging to the subfamily Macrotermitinae. The termites culture the fungus - in much the same way as the attine ants culture members of the Agaricaceae. The Termitomyces mycelium grows on comb-like structures made from faecal pellets (see photo below). These pellets are made of digested plant material passed quickly through the termite gut. After some weeks the plant material is degraded so much by the fungus, that it is palatable to the termites. Termitomyces titanicus (the largest mushroom in the world according to Guinness Book of Records) has a cap diameter of up to 1 meter, whereas Termitomyces microcarpus rarely exceeds 2 cm. Some species are annulate, some not. Some have large velar remains on the cap, others are smooth and viscid. Although the genus covers a wide macromorphological range, the species are not very distinct microscopically. The unifying characters of the Termitomyces species are the pinkish spores, the termite association and the subterranean elongation of the stipe called a pseudorhiza, through which the fruitbodies of most species are connected to the comb in the termite nest. Furthermore most of the species have a pronounced umbo or papilla called a perforatorium, which is thought to play a role during the penetration of the soil.

Extractions: AFRICAN CULTURAL RESOURCES THE ARTS - FILM, LITERATURE, MUSIC, DANCE, MUSEUMS This section reflects African expression. In Africa, the interweaving of art and daily life is well documented. Cultural expressions thus include the plastic and performance arts, but also culinary and linguistic arts as well. A wide range of cultural resources pertaining to Africa have found their way to the American public. Many museums have long valued the rich artistic traditions of Africa in sculpture, weaving, pottery, architecture and other creative areas, and have become passionate promoters of new artists from the continent. Language traditions, culinary traditions, and traditional ways of thought also qualify as cultural representations. Indeed, culture is a very broad canvas on which many different types of expressions can merge.

Extractions: Click for details. Palace Travel Click here for info ABIDJAN is typical of contemporary African cities with its colorful and vivid street life linking modern structures and cherished century-old traditions. Where ABIDJAN differs from other African metropolitan areas is in its population, over one third of which are from neighboring countries such as Mali, Burkino Faso, Guinea, Ghana, Senegal, Liberia among others. Bringing together so many different people within such limited space results in a cultural wealth, and a range of traditions and folklore which is a major asset for a city and country where tourism is of significant importance. Tourism's importance to the Ivorian people is supported by their legendary real hospitality and openness admirably expressed in a proverb from the western region: "Your visitor is more than a son, more than a brother, more than a wife". Travel north from ABIDJAN and your next destination is the central region towards YAMOUSSOUKRO, the political capital of COTE d'IVOIRE. Here you will find the biggest church in the world, after the Vatican, The Basilica "Our Lady of Peace" which seats 7000. Continue on to BOUAKE: the festive city of over 800,000 residents. If you visit in March, attend the week-long carnival - a festivity attracting thousands of visitors.

Extractions: by Ba Karang Though Kwame Nkrumah said some years after the death of Patrice Lumumba in 1960 that the coming revolution in the Congo will be fought in the spirit of Lumumba, the masses did it in 1997 not for the sake of Lumumba but for the present and future. There has been a revolution in the Congo, fought by revolutionary, dedicated people. Yet we are not sure if these are the same people running the affairs of the country. We fear that not giving the masses the chance to play their historical role in a revolutionary situation always leads to their isolation and the grounding of the revolution. But our critique must go beyond these points. To critique the revolution because of, among other things, the recent demonstrations against Kabila in Kinshasa, might not give us a good picture of the forces that see the revolution as an open threat to their interests. These demonstrations occurred only when it was clear that the reactionary Etienne Tshisekedi would not be invited into the new government. We must not forget that as the revolutionary forces were advancing against Mobutu, demonstrations in Kinshasa opposed them, accusing Kabila of being an agent of the Tutsi. The Western press was quick to declare the advancing revolution an ethnic war.

A Paniya woman sat in a seat for three. The two places next to her were empty. Puzzled, I sat next to her. Immediately another woman occupied the third place next to me. 'Cheek of these people,' she muttered. 'They dare to sit when we are standing. What will they do next, I wonder?' I realised that she had stood braving the hairpin bends on a mountain road rather than sit next to the Paniya woman. It was my first experience of racism against aboriginal or Adivasi people in the Nilgiris. June 1994: Stan and I were talking about our work in the Nilgiris at a meeting held in a Birmingham college.

Extractions: Now an established presence in the management workforce and as traveling executives, women may find themselves on the road as much as their male counterparts in seeking to further business opportunities. However, specific gender concerns do need addressing when it comes to conducting business and travel in a country, place, or culture other than ones own. Arming oneself with information in advance will do wonders in overcoming many a difficult situation. The best source from which to derive helpful hints are other female travelers. Seek them out and inquire of them what to expect, most especially those who have been to the destination to which you will travel. In a pinch, their tips may turn out to be your saving grace. Similarly, upon arrival it is in a womans interest to observe female behavior in the country of travel to learn what is appropriate and how best to blend in. Burkina Faso is a male-dominated country and dressing modestly and conservatively will help you have a more pleasant visit to an interesting and fascinating place. Your byword might be: When in Ougadougou do as the Ouagadougouans do. Watch other women as you travel through the country. If they dont sit alone in cafes or wear sleeveless dresses, you shouldnt either.

Extractions: Bahasa Indonesia Nederlands English Español Português Archived: 15/08/02 Homepage RNW Homepage Culture Archive Overview The Politics of Dance By Anna Yeadell, 11 July 2002 Festival Mundial is a multicultural festival with a difference. Bands, dance troupes and NGO's take over a park in the southern Dutch city of Tilburg for a fusion of good works and good vibes. But it's not just fun. Research by the University of Tilburg shows that Mundial has a positive impact on raising awareness about development issues and getting people motivated. "Our goal is to increase respect for each others cultures all over the world," says Harry Oosterman, Financial Director of Mundial Productions. "We want to keep up the support for development aid, and we are doing that in a positive way. When it comes to the third world, we always see the bad news hunger, war, corruption - but that's only 5% of the news, there are so many other positive things. I think we can learn a lot from other countries on the level of culture, social life and that kind of thing." Significant Impact What started 15 years ago as a small world music festival and has now become the biggest event of its kind in Europe, an indication of Mundial's success. Of the 145,000 people who attended the closing weekend many were exposed to the various NGOs who set up their stalls to publicise their causes and latest campaigns. Gerard van de Groot, who carried out the research for the University of Tiburg, says that people leave not only with a greater understanding of the cultures and development issues, but also with a willingness to get actively involved. "When people are willing to get into certain problems," says Gerard, "when they devote time and energy and familiarize themselves with certain problems, that's much more important than giving 25 euros and saying; well that's it for the rest of the year."
Museum Of Ethnology, Vienna: Africa by focussing on presentday developments in popular African culture and art. Hefelduring her long years of exploratory fieldwork in burkino faso forms the http://www.ethno-museum.ac.at/en/collections/africa/africa-i.html
Extractions: Africa The Africa Department with an inventory of c. 37.000 objects comprises the most extensive collection of the house. About one half of the present stock reached the museum before 1927. The ethnographic exhibits cover Africa from the southern rim of the Sahara to the southern tip of the continent, from Christian Ethiopia in the east to Islamic Mauretania and Senegal in the west; the offshore island of Madagascar is also represented in the collection. Specimens of material culture document regal monarchic traditions like Benin, Kamerun or Kaffa down to hunters and gatherers such as the pigmies in the central African rain forest and the San in the South African Kalahari. The old valuable stock is now to be supplemented by focussing on present-day developments in popular African culture and art. Austrian research work in Africa will also be documented by including objects collected on such occasions. Valuable antiques are the Afro-Portuguese ivory carvings which date from Archduke Ferdinand II of Tyrol's "art cabinet" at Ambras Castle and which constitute the most ancient pieces of the collection. The Museum owns three saltcellars, carved horns and several 15th and 16th century spoons, performed in a very fragile technique. The chalice-like lidded vessels were used as decorative saltcellars at the Renaissance courts in Europe. Manufactured in Africa as commission pieces they reflect European models. The difference lies in figurative additions, often based on European themes with biblical and heraldic motives.
