The BEDICK, or BEDIK, are a minority ethnic group of Africa. They live in villages in the most isolated area of eastern Senegal
, in the Arrondissement of Bandafassi . Iwol is one of their settlements.

The Bedick speak the Bedik language and their religion is a blend between their animist roots and a more recent Christian
influence. More connected with Guinea Conakry or Mali
than with Senegal, Bedick people have contact with other ethnic groups like Bassari and Serer . Their ancestors are the families Keita and Camera that came from Mali because of the War led by Alpha Yaye coming from Fouta Djalon .
