The Kah-Monno Fund Mali is sparsely populated and is the poorest country in africa. The dogon people,like so many indigenous peoples, are living in a changing world. http://www.kah-monno.org/
Extractions: It is said, the best way to improve the economic status of people in a developing country is to educate their girls and women. During our recent visit to the Dogon Country in southern Mali, we discovered it costs about $35.00 per year to send one girl to school and Sahara could not resist offering to help them. We hope that you too, will find it irresistible to help these girls. The Dogon people, like so many indigenous peoples, are living in a changing world. Traditional life-ways are disappearing with the new economy, roads and globalization. The lives of the elders differ greatly from those who are middle-aged. And the youth face a future radically different from either their grandmothers or their mothers. The door between the world the children came from and the one they are bound to inherit, has "education" written on it in big letters; thus the "Kah-Monno Group" was formed. On our visit to Mali this past January 2001, Sahara and I stayed in a village I had known on my first visit to Africa in 1987. During my stay, I was given the name, "Yatome," meaning "a cool place" by the Bamadio family. A name not insignificant in a place that is dry and usually well over 100 degrees in the shade. Soon after our arrival and visit with Chief Bamadio, he asked the elders of the village to find a name for my daughter, Sahara. Several days past before the name was picked and the ceremony to name her began.

Extractions: Chapter 1 - INTRODUCTION The notion of indigenous peoples is not new. Historical ethnography and travelogues based much of their early success on reports of bloodthirsty 'natives', savage 'beasts' and cannibalistic 'primitives' with strange customs. Essentially, the notion of the 'other' was being explored and developed, often with inaccurate interpretation.

HISTORY: Jill Yesko Among the objects displayed are examples of ancient Sumerian cuneiform writing, once the international language of diplomacy and the precursor of the modern alphabet and lagash, conical clay objects used to hide secret messages in temple walls. Other rooms contain swords, oil lamps and figurines from the time of Alexander the Great that illustrate the Greek influence in the Middle East. With a kingdom that stretched from England to Azerbaijan in Central Asia, the conquests of Alexander the Great contributed to the Diaspora of Middle Eastern peoples into Egypt, Asia and Africa.

Extractions: by Keith Snedegar, Political Science and History Dept., Utah Valley State College There is no more deeply primeval experience than to gaze overhead at the Milky Way arching from horizon to horizon on a pitch-dark African night. And with good reason: our species originated in Africa; it was from there that our ancestors first looked up and pondered the mysteries of the cosmos. It should strike everyone as odd, then, that cultural astronomers have paid relatively little attention to Africa. The eve of a new millennium is an appropriate time to revisit, or for many of us to contemplate for the first time, the astronomical heritage of humanity's home continent before it is too late. Another well-known megalithic site, Namoratunga II, near Lake Turkana in Kenya may well have aided calendrical observations around 300 B.C. (Lynch and Robbins 1978). Unfortunately, in recent years no other Sub-Saharan monuments have been surveyed for their archaeoastronomical potential. Numerous sites merit such investigation: the Senegambian stone circles, the Central African Republic's Bouar megaliths, and ruins in the Great Zimbabwe tradition. With the prospect of discovery we should no doubt expect many negative results. I am personally skeptical that any alignments could be found in the irregular architecture of the Zimbabwe sites. At all events, someone should look for them. If only there were more copy cats of Lynch, Robbins and Malville than of high-school shootists!
