Storyboard Text

  • This is the Mali empire. But, it was not always an empire. Before the 13th century, it was very small. 
  • Mali was founded by Sundiata Keita. From that day on, it was all about the wealth there.
  • The Mali empire became Islamic in the 13th century. The Mali empire began to weaken in the 15th century, but stayed strong.  
  • The Mali empire also got lots of trades because the trade routes shifted. Arab scholars documented about Mali. But, what they said didn't match up with the Storytellers (Mandinka)

  • My name is Sundiata Keita. People also call me the Lion of Mali. I was not only the founder of an empire, but I also was a powerful prince. During my reign, I established a territorial base. During my childhood, I was almost killed! I was spared because I looked sick and already near death. Thanks to that, I was able to bring this empire to life.
