Mauritania: Popular Memory

Mauritania history generly is not written and not documented as well as required. the majority of this history is popular and oral with the old generation of more than 60 years old. this very important part of history with the original language terms are about to be wasted, especially in the historical old cities registred by UNESCO as human heritage. the project is about documenting (photo,audio,video) this history, and make it available online

  • Hello
    I guess many of my friend here on this website dont know many things about Mauritania, and unfortunatly if they try to find something online will find some informations which are not representing Mauritania as well as recquired, about the traditions, culture…. that one of the reason that make me thinking in “PM” as a step not for you but for Mauritanians themselve. we are in need to know and preserve our languages, old lifestyle, culture…. everything written and numerical . today is a numerical day,
    Mauritania is the country where tha arab culture and the african one have met “take a look at tha map” so it live an immense cultural richness which is global and important for cultures and civilizations. I want to evaluate, document and share this richness. waiting for you questions, suggessions, comments….
