Niofoin scene

Niofoin / Nionfoin / Nioufouin (etc many various spellings seen) between Boundiali and Korhogo is famous for its Senoufo mudbrick fetish houses.

In the Niboladala neighborhood, the origin of Niofoin, most of the structures are traditional mud huts with thatched roofs. Among the elongated and peaked mud barns / granaries, typical in this region of Africa, and the huts of the neighbors of Niboladaba, there are two buildings known as the “fetish houses” with their imposing thick straw roofs rising higher than the others. These two monumental sacred houses guard the two fetishes that protect the town; Diby and Kalegbin. (NB - there is some interesting information on this village on the following website: kumakonda.com/en/niofoin-ivory-coast/ )
