Senegal - The rebellion at Thies - Courtier Coumba Arehn

The circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the Thies rebellion remain obscure. An article at the time said that the rebellion began after the sentencing to 15 days in jail of Diery Fall. He did not accept the charge and with associates, attacked and killed a young colonial officer, Monsieur Chautemps. Two days later, Diery Fall was caught and killed by his own brother who cut off his head and forearm to bring the Pouvergue administrator who had them exposed publicly as a warning and intimidation. Another assassin, Sarithia Dieye was caught a few days later at St. Mary of Bathurst in Gambia. All that remains of this dramatic episode are these remarkable postcards. After being caught on camera, Canar Fall (head of Western Baol province), his brother and "courtiers" (one of which, Coumba Arehn, is pictured here) were all deported to Guyana. Date: 1904

Senegal - The rebellion at Thies - Canar Fall

Canar Fall, head of Western Baol province in Senegal, considered to be the cause of the Thies rebellion of 7th April 1904, photographed having been taken prisoner. The circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the Thies rebellion remain obscure. An article at the time said that the rebellion began after the sentencing to 15 days in jail of Diery Fall. He did not accept the charge and with associates, attacked and killed a young colonial officer, Monsieur Chautemps. Two days later, Diery Fall was caught and killed by his own brother who cut off his head and forearm to bring the Pouvergue administrator who had them exposed publicly as a warning and intimidation. Another assassin, Sarithia Dieye was caught a few days later at St. Mary of Bathurst in Gambia. The exact role of Canar Fall in this story is unknown. He was probably related to Diery Fall, unless he was simply involved as head of Baol. All that remains of this dramatic episode are these remarkable postcards. After being caught on camera, Canar Fall, his brother and "courtiers" were all deported to Guyana. Date: 1904
