Under the first section are included a brief historical sketch, and information on agriculture, diet, natural resources, domestic animals, pottery-making, smiths, stonework and other occupations. The second section describes the forms of the family found among the Mossi, and contains information on government, the Moro Naba, and various religious practices.
