  • Description :
    The Southern Omo Valley is Africa's last remaining true wilderness. All the tribes of the valley are transhumant pastoralists speaking an Omotic language. On top of their love and care that they give to their cattle, both men and women of this wilderness give special importance to their personal beauty.

    With their economy depending on cattle-keeping, and the cow being central l to their culture, the Hamer have 27 words for describing the colors of their cows and bulls, and each Hamer has several names which are a so-called ‘cow's name' and a ‘goat's name'. Cattle being central in the Hamer's sense of survival, it is not too surprising that their vanity is often expressed by an effort to look more like cows. Women wear skirts made of cow-hide along with imitation cow-tails which, as they walk, sweep gently to and fro with the movement of their hips.

    Of all the tribes, the Hamer are the most elegant ones as both men and women pay great attention to the styling and decoration of their hair. The women are beautifully attired in their beaded skins and iron jewelry. They wear their hair in dense ringlets smeared with mud and clarified butter and topped off with a head-dress featuring oblongs of gleaming aluminum. To symbolize courage, clay hair buns are worn by Hamer men who have killed either an enemy or a dangerous animal such as a lion or a leopard.
