The Trials and Tribulations of a Somali Desert Nomad with Shugri Said Salh

POSTED December 15, 2021 IN
Interviews

In this deep dialogue you’ll hear from a woman who is the last person in her direct lineage to have lived as a nomad and keeper of her family stories. Ancestors on both sides of her family were nomads. They traveled the East African desert in search of grazing land for their livestock and, the most precious resource of all, water. It only took a few years for her beloved country of Somalia to be changed forever by a civil war that drastically altered the tradition of storytelling. However, Salh’s grandmother imbued her with resilience, courage, a love of poetry, storytelling and, above all, an appreciation of the beauty of the Somali culture. Here we explore with Shugri Said Salh her journey from the deserts of East Africa to the green pastures of Northern California.
