Deafness and Blindness, Disability and Inclusion, in West African Tradition and Modernity: review of books and materials
By M. Miles (
CONSTANZE SCHMALING (2000) Maganar Hannu: Language of the hands. A descriptive analysis of Hausa Sign Language. (International Studies on Sign Language and Communication of the Deaf, Volume 35). Hamburg: Signum Verlag. xx + 295 pages. isbn 3-927731-70-6. Softback. UK Pounds 26.95.

A little-known storehouse of disability-related traditions and activities awaits detailed exploration across the countries of West Africa, from the 13th century onward. Some parts are starting to reappear in new editions, surveys and research studies, such as those listed above. Other fragments are to be found in older travellers' reports and missionary archives. The best general guide is probably still John Iliffe's account (1987) of the history of the African poor. However, the West African disability history field is slowly growing and differentiating itself from that of other regions.
The precise nature of the historical Sunjata's childhood impairment is now impossible to decide. The present edition of the tales as told by two Gambian griots notes that "Griots do not generally suggest any reason for Sunjata's lameness" (p. 97). One version has him crawling on all fours for seven years (p. 5); another says that at twelve or at fourteen years "Sunjata could not crawl, Much less stand up, Much less walk" (pp. 57, 59, 74-75, 113). Did he refuse to get up out of pique because his half-brother had mistakenly been recognised as the first-born? (p. 5) Did the seven- or fourteen- year pregnancy of his ugly, hunchbacked mother have any bearing on the issue? (pp. 4, 42, 99, 110) Did he prefer to be carried, like the 'Boy Who Refused To Walk' in the Hausa folk tale? (Tremearne, 1913, 351-354; also 196). Ask the next griot you meet.

19. Niger
that a massive river flowed through the West african savanna, but was finally solvedthrough expeditions headed by Scottish explorer hugh clapperton from 1823
In Nigeria, major empires such as Ife, Oyo, Benin, and Sokoto extended their influence over parts of the Niger Valley at various times. The Nupe kingdom, centered at Bida, and the Borgu kingdom at Bussa had established themselves in the Niger Valley by the 15th century. Several city-states in the Niger Delta, most notably Brass and Bonny, prospered through their participation in trade with Europeans, exporting slaves, ivory, and palm oil.
Throughout the 19th century the British government, often collaborating with trading companies, solidified its control over the Niger delta and the Nigerian coast. By 1900 most of present-day Nigeria had been occupied. The Niger and Benue rivers provided access to the interior, which the British exploited for commercial, military, and political purposes. Upstream from Nigeria, the rest of the Niger Basin was within the colony of French West Africa. Except for Guinea, which became independent from France in 1958, colonial rule throughout the region ended in 1960.
