Erbore Boy With Painted Face - Ethiopia

The Erbore tribe is a tribe that lives in the southwest of the Omo Valley.

They are pastoralists, measuring their wealth in terms of the amount of cattle they own.

The women wear a black cloth to cover their head and use colorful necklaces and earrings.

The children wear a calabash hat to protect them from the sun.

Another custom is bodypainting using natural products.
