Northern Burkina Faso Fulani African Nomads
Fulani man in the seasonal village of Bantagiri in northern Burkina Faso.  The Fulani are traditionally nomadic pastoralists, crisscrossing the Sahel season after season in search of fresh water and green pastures for their cattle and other livestock.  The turban protects against dust kicked up by the livestock as well as the harsh Harmattan winds.
