Short documentary videos of practical activities and cultural events of Dogon, Fulbe, Songhay, and Bangande ethnic groups of eastern Central Mali. The videos were byproducts of linguistic research on the local language. They are presented here in three formats: wmv, avi, and either qt or mov. See the "readme" files in each work for a summary of the videos in it. and The footage was shot with various digital cameras. The oldest videos (2010 and one or two from 2011) were edited using iMovie. The later videos were edited using AVS editing software. Several of the 2010 videos, referred to as "compilations," are simple sequences of short clips that combine to illustrate a complex activity such as extracting oil from nuts. The later videos are in more flowing documentary form with overlaid titles in English. In some cases, vocabulary from the relevant native language is included in the titles.
This collection was produced as part of the project, “A ‘Big Data’ Approach to Understanding Neighborhood Effects in Chronic Illness Disparities.” The Investigators for the project are Tiffany Veinot, Veronica Berrocal, Phillipa Clarke, Robert Goodspeed, Daniel Romero, and VG Vinod Vydiswaran from the University of Michigan. The study took place from 2015-2016, with funding from the University of Michigan’s Social Sciences Annual Institute, MCubed, and the Sloan and Moore Foundations.

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.
This collection represents various raw data and analysis of cores extracted during the January 2009 mission of the research vessel Sproul in the Santa Barbara Basin., Cores included: box core SPR0901-04BC, box core SPR0901-unnamed, and Kasten core SPR0901-03KC.
