Description

The Bambara tribe's meaning is "resisters" or "infidels" as they initially resisted Islam upon its introduction. They now practice a form of it. They are the founders of the Mali empire in the 13th Century. When the Mali empire began to crumble around 1559, the Bambara empire began its rise around 1740.
