1. "An industry of the Bones" is a multimedia project that follows the process of making jewelry out animal bones.  Cow bone, specifically, is boiled to make a soup and the left over bones are used for this jewelry.  Our host, Fatuma Noor, works with local craftspeople in her hometown of Kibera.  Noor helps the craftspeople by providing access to buyers and distributing their goods throughout East Africa.  Kibera, located 7km southwest of Nairobi, is the largest and most densely populated slum in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Close to 1 million people live in an environment heavily polluted by soot, dust, and open sewage.  There are more than 100,000 orphaned children living there, the majority orphaned by the AIDS virus.
