Leiden Dogon - myth and reality

in collaboration with the National Museum Mali
The Dogon live in Mali, on the Plateau, along the Bandiagara escarpment and
in the plain of Seno-Gondo, the latter extending into Burkina Faso. And we find
Dogon people outside Dogon territory - in large Malinese conurbations such as
Mopti and Bamako, as also in Ghana, Ivory Coast and France. They all identify
themselves as Dogon, despite wide cultural differences.
