Introduction / History
The Pana are a small ethnic group living in Burkina Faso and south central Mali. The population inhabiting 13 villages is fairly evenly divided between the two countries. The Pana live by subsistence farming. The rains, which come between May and October, are generally adequate to allow for such crops as rice and maize, besides millet, the staple. Raising livestock, such as cattle and goats, is important to the Pana. The area is not easily reached due to the poor quality of the roads. One effect of this relative isolation is fewer government services. Only three elementary schools, are found within the region. Receiving adequate health care also becomes more difficult with poor roads.
