Most people of the nomadic tribes of the Fulani, Soninke and Black Moor in the area north of Kayes are muslim. In the villages we saw often mosques, even large ones, like this one at the picture.

There are hardly any christians in this part of Mali. Because in the eyes of muslims Jesus is a prophet with a great healing power, I heard the handful of christians north of Kayes goes by the name of 'followers of Jesus' instead of christians.
