Don’t forget to shake hands when greeting - it's common to put the right hand to the chest to show the respect. A hug is common for friends. A slight nod or bow of the head is appropriate when greeting elders.

Don't forget women in Mali have elevated status in culture - they are always consulted when making community decisions. The status is well-earned - they take a lot of family's workload including gathering of water, wood or bringing things to market.
