About What's Under the Icon at the Top

The annual Fulani cattle-crossing ceremony is highlighted by the dramatic fording of the River Niger and its tributaries by thousands of cattle, forced into the fast-flowing water and made to swim. On the far side are the rich grasslands and vast swampy plains of the Niger's interior delta. The young herders live in isolation, separated from their families, through the dry season. They then return with the herds, alive and healthy, to assure the survival of the Fulani. Herders' parents often give their sons gifts of silver finger-rings in appreciation for bringing the cattle home successfully. Mali. Men of the African Ark calendar, Pomegranate
