4.3b(i) Interview with Nafisatu, Ile Eleke, Ilorin, 7 September 1988: Background information

       Nafisatu was an elderly potter, who had given me information on pottery during previous interviews. This time she had agreed to talk about dyeing. A question about whether slave women were involved in dyeing led into a discussion of slaves. Part of this interview was tape recorded, but taping had to be stopped, as I remember, when the interviewee withdrew her permission.
