A picture is worth a thousand words... It´s one of those phrases that, for having heard it millions of times, doesn´t lose its meaning, at least sometimes. And we think this is one of those times, because although we´ve been doing our best for years to tell you about the Bijagós Archipielago, in Guinea Bissau.
Between myth and reality are tales of the existence of a matriarchal society among the Bijagós. The German anthropologist Hugo Adolf Bernatzik left us an amazing story in his work, “En el Reino de los Bijagós” (In the kingdom of Bijagós), where we can read: “In the land of the Bijagós, the expression, ‘the weak sex’ does not ring true at all to the female inhabitants of Orango.”
We would like to introduce this strikingly beautiful publication to you. Dedicated to this lovely corner of Africa by the Independent National Park Entity, it has made us fall in love with the land of the Bijagó and is an inspiring read for any nature lover.
