March 1970: Nearing the end of the dry season, the cotton had been picked and here she carded the cotton getting it ready to make cotton thread for country clothes. This photo was taken in the village of Sokurella, a small village at the base of the Loma Mountains and Mt. Bintumani. This woman had the typical hairdo of Kuranko women. This was taken on the veranda of her home during the mid-day when heat was intense. This village sat a short distance from the border with Guinea.
