Storyboard Text

  • I have traveled here from the Sahel to trade this gold for salt.
  • I have traveled here from the Sahara desert to trade this salt for gold
  • We can both get what we won't without talking through a system called Silent Barter.
  • Silent Barter was usually used between two groups of people who didn't speak the same language.
  • The process is simple enough. I place my gold and run to a location where I am hidden, but can still see the goods.
  • Next, I come along and place what I think is fair trade for the gold.
  • If I think the amount of goods I get in return is fair, The I take the salt and leave the gold for my trader. If I don't think its fair than I leave and let the trader place more.
