Bedick Tribe

The Bedick are a minority tribe with Mali origin. They fled for the Islam into southern Senegal - Kedougou - and created their traditional villages on top of the hills. Although they turned to Christianity, many animistic aspects stayed and they did not loose their traditions. The Biwol Bedick live in the village of Iwol, the Bonapasse Bedick live in the village of Ethiouwar. In addition to ear piercing of Bonapasse Bedick, the Biwol have also a nose piercing.
