Eternal Mali Summary

In this final chapter, the griot speaks of present day Africa going back to Sundiata's time, discussing how no king after him came close to his greatness. The griot encourages his audience to travel to Mali and the sites of the battles and conference to see the remainders of the parts of the tale. The forests near Mali remain, as do the battleground and the tree marking the meeting of the twelve nations. The griot also warns that there are mysteries of Mali known only to the griots, and that outsiders will never know the full wonder of the eternal nation of Mali.

He ends by saying many people today do not appreciate or value the lessons he has learned. Thus, he has been instructed to reveal only those secrets appropriate to tell and the rest are confined within the vessels of the griots.
