バンバラ族の言い伝えを元にしたマリのSouleymane Cissé監督の名作Yeelen。時代設定は不明ですが、
13世紀のマリ帝国時代ですかね。マジックやなんかかなり神秘的な感じですがドゴンでの体験を思い出して
みたりするとリアル度倍増どころではない感じでロケ地 にも喰らいます。バンバラ語とフラニ語が使われて
います。(105分)

Yeelen is a 1987 Malian film directed by Souleymane Cissé. It is based on a legend told by the Bambara
people. Though the era is undefined, it is presumably set in the 13th century in the Mali Empire and is a
heroic quest narrative featuring magic and precognition. It is filmed in the Bambara and Fula languages.
The filmed locations are outstanding. (105mins)

この日はずっと徒歩でBagourou村からEndé、Téli、Kani Komboléへと歩いてみました♪
そのままKani Komboléで一泊、夕食の後灯りが見えたので行ってみると焚き火を囲んで
子供達がコーランの勉強をしていました。この夜もピースな感じで就寝♪

That day, I walked from Bagourou to Endé to Téli and ended up in Kani Kombolé where I spent
the night. After the dinner, I followed the glow of a burning fire where I found kids studying the
Qur'an. A very peaceful night.

ドゴンの人々の挨拶は一言では終わりません。言葉のキャッチボール。 知り合いでも他人でも道端で
人に会う度に何度でもこの長い挨拶をします。家族、家畜、家、仕事などその時の気分で色々訪ねます。
村や地域によって多少違いはありますが奥さんや子供に親の事を訪ねれば間違いなし。挨拶されたら
とりあえずわかんなくても"セオウ(元気)"って答えれば大丈夫。この挨拶作法をマスターすればかなりの
好感度アップ間違いなし♪ ネットでビデオみつけたんでチェケラッチョ。

Greetings are very important in the Dogon, just as they are throughout Mali. Even if you see each other several
times a day, you will greet one another each time. Such a greeting may take a while and will even continue as the
greeters pass each other by. They ask about the family, animals, home, work, etc., but it really depends on the
mood. You cannot go wrong if you ask about the person's wife, children or parents. Even if you don't understand
the people when they greet you, a friendly “sé-ouw(fine)” is a good enough answer. It would definitely make a great
impression on Dogon people if you master it.

Tireli村を後にBegnimato村へ向けて出発するものの、気付けば道に迷いというか道なんてあるようで
ない感じなんですが幾つか小さな村を通過してようやくBengnimatoのふもとへ到着。そこから崖の
頂上にあるBengnimatoへ徒歩々々登ると村が登場♪ここは眺めが半端ないです。この村ではモスクは
見かけませんでしたが教会がありました。灯りらしい灯りはこの村にも無く、見えるのは教会のドア
から漏れた一筋のランプ光と空一面の星ぐらいしかなく教会からは子供達の歌声と太鼓の音が響く
こんな夜もまたいとおかし♪

We left Tireli heading to the next destination, Bengnimato. We were kind of lost on the road and passed through
several small villages finally reaching the bottom of the cliff near Bengnimto. We hiked up to the top of the cliff
which is where the village of Begnimato is located. The houses appeared as soon as you reached to the top of
the cliff. The view was amazing. I didn't see a mosque but there was a church in the village. The village, like most
others, has little if no light. Children were singing to beat of drums in the church. The only light we saw was
a streak of light coming from the church. It shined bright amongst a black canvas sky full of stars. It made for
a very peaceful night.

バンディアガラの崖には14~15世紀頃移り住んできたドゴンの人々の遥か前の11世紀頃にはテレムが
移り住んでいて、ドゴンが来てからも200年位は共存していたそうです。その後はブルキナファソの
方に移って行ったなどの説はありますがはっきりとはわかっていないみたいです。どうやって登った
のか知りませんがテレムは崖の中腹の洞穴等に家を建てたらしくそれらは今でも残っていてドゴンは
亡くなった人をロープで吊ってその穴に運び上げ葬ります。崖の下の方にあるテレムや古いドゴンの
家にはロープを使わずに登れる所もあるので軽く探索してみたり♪
*スライド写真の最初の7枚は自分で撮った物ですが残りはネットで拾ってきたのであしからず。。

The Tellem are people reached the Bandiagara escarpment by the 11th century before Dogon reached the cliffs
by the 14~15th century and thus shared with the Tellem the same territory for some two hundred years.The word
The Tellem built their houses (Pegue Toulou) in and amongst the caves halfway up the cliff wall and the Dogon
still use them as burial places, often hauling bodies up on the end of ropes. Only those young men of the village,
who have special permission and skills in climbing are allowed to climb up to these houses. At the base of the cliff
there are also some Tellem houses and very old Dogon settlements. These can easily be reached on foot by visitors.

Tireli村でDogonの仮面舞踊を観てきました♪ 生はかなり喰らいます。古代から引き継がれている
ドゴンの仮面舞踊には、過ちを償い世代の更新象徴するドゴンで最も重要とされる儀式シギが60年
に一度催されるのと、そして死者の魂を体から引き離しドゴンの人々を守る先祖となるべく葬送の
儀式ダマの2種類があります。家父長制で構成されているドゴンの社会では仮面の扱いや儀式はアワと
呼ばれる男性陣によって行われます。仮面はSuigideとKanagaなど特別な仮面のほか動物や女性など
70種類以上もあるそうです。近年ではタイミングさえあえば披露してもらえます。Baileの実家の村
だったのでアレンジしてもらえてラッキー♪ 次のシギは2027年なので興味のある方は是非旅のプランを。
ビゴップ Baile & Tireli村!

I had a great opportunity to witness a Dogon Mask Dance at the village of Tireli. The masks serve to connect
the Dogon people to the world of heaven where the afterworld exists, and Earth, which provides food, shelter
and life. The Dogon are a patriarchal society and traditionally the Dogon masks are controlled and cared for
by a group of male known as “Awa”. The dancers bring the mask to life in ancient ritualistic ceremonies such
as the “Dama”, a funerary celebration that honors and commemorates the dead as they enter the ancestral realm
at the end of the the funeral ceremony Yimu Gono. Another is the Sigui, a ceremony of initiation and atonement
and the Dogon's most culturally significant cerebration that takes place only one time every 60 years. the next
one will start in 2027. However they are organized the dance for the tourists nowadays, as sort of extra income for
the community. Since Tireli is Baile's home, He arranged to have a dance for me. Big ups Baile & the village of Tireli!

ノンモは、上半身は人、下半身は蛇、手に関節が無く、舌は二股に分かれている姿をしているという
ドゴンに伝わる神(精霊)で遠い昔に地上を訪れ, シリウスBなどシリウス連星や太陽系などについて高度な
天文学をドゴンの人々に教えたと言い伝えられています。ノンモの故郷はニャン・トロと呼ばれるもう
一つのシリウス連星シリウスC(エンメヤ)の周りを回る惑星ですが、現代の天文学では確認されていない
そうです。古代エジプト文明やシュメール文明それからドゴンの文化には類似点が多くみられることから
何かしらの接点があるのではとも言われています。その一つにシュメール双頭神オアネスとノンモが
似ている事や、 エジプト文明では女神イシスをシリウス, オシリスをシリウスBとシンボル化したのでは
と言われています。。やっぱり遠い昔にシルウス連星系から宇宙人が来てたのかな?! どう思います??

The Nommo are ancestral spirits worshipped by Dogon. The Nommos are usually described as amphibious,
hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures. the Dogon's knowledge of astronomy and non-visible cosmic phenomenon
could only be explained if this knowledge had been imparted upon them by an extraterrestrial race that had
visited the Dogon in the past. the Nommos were extraterrestrial inhabitants of the Sirius star system who
had traveled to earth at some point in the distant past and had imparted knowledge about the Sirius star
system as well as our own Solar System upon the Dogon tribes. Sirius C (Emme ya) also revolves around Sirius.
and its satellite Nyan Tolo is believed to be the Nommo's home land although there are still disputes about
Sirus C existence in scientific world. There are traces of this mysterious connection in many ancient cultures,
such as the ancient Egyptians and the Sumerians and the Dogon. The Sumerian goddess Oannes is very similar
to the Dogon's Nommo. and the Egiptian goddess Isis was a symbol of Sirius, and Osiris a symbol of the Dark
Companion of Sirius, Sirius B. Do you think the aliens came to the earth from Sirus Solar system in ancient time??

類似点が多い事等からドゴンの人々は紀元前3,200年以前にエジプトから移り住んだのではという説が
あります。ドゴンの伝説には恒星シリウスに関する物があるといわれています。そのひとつに地球から
肉眼でみる事が出来ないシリウスの伴星シリウスB (ポ トロ)の存在、そしてそれの公転周期が50年で自転
する白色矮星で非常に重い金属からできているなど現代天文学に引けを取らない知識があったのではとも
言われています。本当に天文学の知識があったのでしょうか?それとも単なる偶然?もしくは伝説を誤って
解釈したのか?どう思います??

The Dogon are believed to be of Egyptian decent by many people. Their astronomical lore goes
back thousands of years to 3200 BC. According to their ancient traditions, the star Sirius has a
companion star, Sirus B (Po Tolo), which is invisible to the human eye. This companion star has
a 50 year elliptical orbit around the visible Sirius and is extremely heavy. It also rotates on its
axis. Did they really have extraordinary astronomical knowledge or misinterpreted or a just
another strange coincidence? What do you think?

ToはDogonの家庭料理のひとつ、ミレットをこねたものでOronigueというバオバブの葉のソースにつけて
食べます。Tireli村のBaileの実家にお邪魔した時に二度もごちそうになりました♪ 味の方はう~~~ん。。。
でも食料の少ないDogonの地で主食の様に食べられているなんて聞いたら不味いなんて言えません。
もぐもぐがんばって食べてたら、つくりたてだしどんどん食べて!って勧めてくれて困りつつも満腹満喫♪
お礼にと思い家族写真を撮ろうとしたら、お母さんとおばさんせくせくとドレスアップ♪ 気付いたら
お父さんもばっちりキメキメ♪またいつか会いにお邪魔しに行きたいです。これからも末永くお元気で♪

To is a typical Dogon food made out of Millet and dipped into Oronigue, which is Baobab leaf sauce, and eaten.
Luckily, I had the chance to taste it two days in a row when I visited Baile's parents and family in Tireli village.
To be honest, I was not a fan of its taste. But, I could not turn it down after they told me that's what they mostly eat.
I took some family photos as a return for their hospitality. Prior to photographing them, I told them they look
good as they are. But, his mother and aunt all started dressing up♪ It was cute. lol His father was in the proper
Dogon style as well♪ They look great in the pictures♪ I enjoyed spending time with his family.
I would love to go visit them again one day, I wish them a long, healthy, happy and blessed life. Thank you!
