Abstract Nomadische Tuareg kommen mit Kamelkarawanen nach Fachi, um von den seßhaften Kanuri Salz und Datteln gegen Hirse, Käse, Ziegen u. a. einzuhandeln. Kleinhandel auf dem Karawanenplatz. Tauschhandel in den Häusern (Datteln gegen Hirse).
Tuareg nomads arrive with caravans of camels at Fachi in order to trade with the sedentary Kanuri for salt and dates. The Tuaregs camp on the caravan-place, in the shelter of big bunches of grass carried on the trip as food for the camels. The film shows different kinds of trading between Kanuri and Tuareg people. One man exchanges dates and money for a young goat. We then see a Kanuri and a Tuareg men effecting the sale of salt; shortly after the Tuareg transports his bars of salt by camel from the saltern to the caravan-place. The small trade is carried on chiefly by women and girls. A Kanuri man buys for one hundred francs dried goat-cheese, a woman obtains goat-cheese in barter of salt and dates. The important barter of dates for millet is carried on in the Kanuri man's house. Each partner measures with the same vessel the other one's product. On the caravan-place the salt bars are wrapped up to be loaded onto the camels.
