Animal Village

In the heart of West Africa, in the land of the Zarma, was the village of Zindair, where only animals lived. The chief, a lion named Zamboha, ruled the village wisely. Life was good. The wet season followed the dry season and there was always plenty of food and water.

“In her book, Animal Village, such mighty lessons Nelda LaTeef teaches the young and those of us who are not so young. Listen to the ‘old stories’ passed down from ‘the ancestors;’ it is always better to pull together rather than stand against each other; keep at a task until it is done; and everything is possible, by and by.”

Johnnetta Betsch Cole, Director, Smithsonian National Museum of African Art

“Animal Village is an inspiring story that teaches us perseverance and the value of working together. What is true in the animal village equally holds for our global village.''

Benita Ferrero-Waldner, European Commissioner for Trade and European Neighborhood Policy and Chief of Protocol for the United Nations
