Through the eyes of Fulani nomads

Pulaku documentary project
"Fulani herders persist peacefully today in a turbulent African landscape, but their unique lifestyle and rich culture has never been documented in web 2.0.  Despite ample drama on the African stage this exceptional tribe thrives largely without conflict, and intimate reports of this paradox are unprecedented.  Christoph Herby, a seasoned American explorer, and Guida Belco, a multilingual Fulani, plan to traverse the African continent, lodging in Fulani camps and intimately documenting the life of this remarkable culture.  Using a blog format with interactive media and video, this project invites global participation and shares an insight into one of Africa’s least understood cultures."
