Tammari

Categories: Ethnicities

The Tammari, linguistically of the Gur Family, are fiercely independent agronomic herdsmen who inhabit the hills and valleys of Benin and Togo. Their iconic fortified, two-storied architecture dot the land of which they are merely “caretakers”, the true owners being animistic underground forces.
