Dogon mythology says that Nommo was the first living creature created by the sky god Amma. Shortly after his creation, Nommo underwent a transformation and multiplied into four pairs of twins. One of the twins rebelled against the universal order created by Amma. To restore order to his creation, Amma sacrificed another of the Nommo progeny, whose body was dismembered and scattered throughout the universe.[1] This dispersal of body parts is seen by the Dogon as the source for the proliferation of Binu shrines throughout the Dogons’ traditional territory; wherever a body part fell, a shrine was erected.

The Dogon are a people who occupy the Bandiagara cliffs, the sandstone plateau at its summit, and the sandy Seno plain at its base. It is Marcel Griault who did the most extensive studies about the Dogon in the 60's. Before being the Dogon, they where called Tellem ( for objects before the XIth century. ).
