Introduction / History

The Dogoso, or Black Dogose, are one of the many small ethnic groups of southwestern Burkina Faso. The 13 villages of their homeland form two pockets separated by the red Dogose which extend into Cote d'Ivoire.

The Dogose are subsistence farmers, growing the usual millet, sorghum, maize, and peanuts. Yet it is for the quality of their yams that they are known in Burkina Faso - the yams serve as an important cash crop for the group. Living in the country's southwest region, the Dogoso generally do not have water shortage problems; they receive some 40 inches of rain annually. While the Dogoso are financially well-off when compared with some other Burkina Faso people groups, they nonetheless have areas of need. First, none of their villages have health care facilities: a sick person must travel many kilometers to a clinic. A second concern is the lack of primary schools, only three villages have them.
