MD was born in 1932 in Baures and is a half-brother of AD and CD. He is a cattle owner (approx. 70 bovines) and peasant. MD is a good Baure speaker but not that fluent, due to lack of practice. He is very helpful in transcribing and translating Baure-texts. MD has very good knowledge of Baure history and customs. He knows how to play traditional music on the flute and used to work as a teacher of culture in the local school.
