Die Frauenkarawane

Winds of Sand, Women of Rock

Nathalie Borgers
This may be the last journey of Ismitta, Ebiere and Uma and their companions of the Toubou women’s caravan in the Sahara. Each fall, armed with daggers, they leave the men behind and cross the desert to sell dates in Agadez to bring back the means to survive in the village for another year. This economic responsibility gives them a special position in their society.
