This is a collection of photos of villages located primarily in Central Mali. These photos are primarily of Dogon villages, but there are village photos of other nearby ethnicities, including Bangande, Fulbe, Tuareg, Songay, and Bozo.These photos were taken to document the villages Professor Jeffrey Heath worked in and people he worked with while documenting languages throughout the region. For interactive geographical maps involving these villages see: http://dogonlanguages.org/geography.cfm.
