Description
The numuw, (blacksmiths) play an important and complicated role in Mande society: their job of creating the tools that everyone depends on for work, farming, etc makes them indispensable, but their knowledge of and association with the occult often makes them both feared and respected. I came to watch this young blacksmith perform his grueling work at the forge one day, while I was visiting a neighboring village.
