The Teacher

THE TEACHER: (second in the Mother’s Day Series) This Woodabe Fulani mother is teaching her daughter how to make a necklace amulet made of leather and cowry shells. The Fulani are well known for their knowledge of magic and traditional medicine.  The person that will wear the amulet will be guarded from evil.  The daughter listens intently, and one day she too will be a great bearer of Woodabe lore.
