Greetings in Serer ... Nafio

Greeting a village Chief with the gift of a "Wordless Book" Prayer Shawl
"Nafio" is Serer for "Hello, how are you doing?" 

Greetings in Senegal are very important. Because relationships are so important, you greet each person by name and run through a series of questions to let them know that you value their friendship. 

Our team is learning some basic greetings in the Serer language. The village of Babak is a Serer village. If you'd like to get a flavor for what our team is learning, click on the link below and listen to the typical way of greeting one another in Serer.
