Village Life

Wendou Nody is a village of about 1,000 people in northern Senegal in West Africa. The people are of the Toucouleur tribe and their native language is Pulaar (Senegal's official language is French). These photographs were taken by Daniel Owens from 1984 to 1986 while he served in the village of Wendou Nody as a Peace Corps volunteer. These photographs may be copied for educational and nonprofit purposes.
