BTS of Living On The Edge: Tribes of OMO Valley Ethiopia

| |


A short behind the scenes video from our trip to Ethiopia in October 2012. We visited few different tribes in Lower OMO Valley Ethiopia, amazing people. It was fantastic to be able to see how they live their lives.

My friend Asi Kala from Voganarki Village a part of the Hamer tribe..
Unfortunately they are being forced to leaving their original living habits and are being pushed of their lands, while the government are raising sugar factories and dams around the area so probably in few years they will be vanished from what we know as unspoiled tribes.

Scar Pattern on a Mursi Woman's Stomach Scarring can be used to accentuate the shape of the female body. Mursi (or Murzi) women of Ethiopia have elaborate symmetrical scarring patterns made on their bodies. They focus on the stomach but also curve around the breasts. The flat skin of the stomach is raised with sharp thorns and then cut. — with Garðar Ólafsson in Ethiopia.
