the dogon

The Dogon are an ancient people situated in Mali, West Africa. They have a complex divination system. The Hogon (spiritual elder) performs a ritual, which involves drawing grids and symbols in the sand at dusk. The Hogon leaves an offering of millet, milk and peanuts for the sacred sand fox. He returns in the morning to see if the offerings are accepted and that the ritual has been carried out successfully. If so he can interpret the answer to his questions from the fox’s footprints left behind from the night before. Want more information like this?
