The SahoArchive.org Project

The aim of this website is to collect as many materials as possible regarding the Saho-speaking communities of Eritrea and Ethiopia. Old and new articles and books, or simply excerpts from books that speak about the language, the history, the culture and the territory of the Saho. Audios, videos and pictures may also be added, as well as links to other websites.

The site will be regularly updated with new contents, so follow us!
