  • Mali's Geography
  • Welcome to Mali! We are here to tell you a little information about this amazing country!
  • Let's start by talking about the geography of Mali.  Mali arose on the Niger River, just south of the Sahara Desert in the Savannah region (Sahel).
  • Mali's Society
  • The Mansa had absolute power which was incontestable. He ruled the empire with total authority, passed down by heredity.  Also, Four-fifths of Mali's people work in agriculture, mainly in subsistence farming. The country also has many cottage industries, such as those making handicrafts. Mali is especially renowned for its wood carving, pottery, baskets and textiles.
  • Mali's Society pt:2
  • Did you know 90% of Mali population is Muslim and is comprised of numerous ethnic groups, speaking over 40 languages between them. Much of Africa was colonized by European empires, which parceled off the land into colonies and assigned those colonies names. As a result, the names of many African nations don't necessarily reflect the ancient African kingdoms to once dominate the continent.
  • Mali's Economy
  • Mali's Economy is manly based on agriculture. Right now, Mali is one of the poorest counties.  Trade is also a big part of Mali. We would run what we call the Gold-Salt trade. We do not have the best climate and that makes it kind of hard to find our country.
  • Mali's Religion
  • Mali is comprised of 4 differenet religions. The most common one you can find is Animist. However, you can also find Muslim, Christian, and Islam.
  • Well Kids, that is all we have for you today. I hope you learned something new today. Oh, and remember to stay positive, never stop asking questions, and  be mindful of others!
