Mali facts & history in brief

People of Mali.

The best known tribes of Mali are the Dogon people who successfully escaping Muslim expansion and preserved their traditions and culture.
The Dogons are cliff dwellers who have their irrigated farms around their villages.
The Dogon still occupy and continue to build the same cliff dwellings today. The Dogon always believed the Earth was round and circled the Sun and that there are eleven planets in the solar system. Their masks, woodcarvings and dances are world famous.
Dogon boys over the age of 12 get circumcised at triennial ceremony. Another of Mali's famous people are the 'blue' or Tuareg tribes that settled in and around Tombouctou. They are desert or nomadic tribes.
