Mali is homeland of a number of ethnical groups like Bambara, Fulani, Senufo, Songhai, Mandingo, Tuareg, and Dogon. They all have different origins, beliefs and traditions. Some are nomadic, like the Bozo, who are itinerant fishermen establishing different villages along the shore of the Niger River as they follow their catch. Or like the Fulani or Peul ethnical group, or the Tuaregs, who wander from one place to another in search of pastures for their animals.
Mali is basically a rural country with an agricultural based economy. Most of the population is Muslin, with a small minority being Christian, although virtually everybody is still attached to their old animistic beliefs.
