Cote D’Ivoire

In September 2018, we will experience the wonderful culture of the Senoufo people of Cote D’Ivoire. The Senoufo is one of the largest ethnic groups in Cote D’Ivoire. They originally migrated from Mali and Burkina Faso. For years the Senoufo have been sharing their culture around the world.
