Peul (Fulani) herdsmen from Macina cross the Niger river with their cattle. This event, crossing the waters, recalls two myths: the ancestors of the Peul's journey from India, during which they crossed the Red Sea to reach Africa, and the origin of the cow, which, according to an African myth, sprang from the water..A very important ritual which, not by chance, coincides with Mali's national day (21.10).
