Ethiopian Tribes, Karo

Ethiopia, tribes, Kara people, one of the elders of the Karo village Korcho, his name is Larka.


The Karo people in South Omo call themselves 'Kara' which means 'fish' in their language. Actually they don't like the name 'Karo' very much because 'karo' means 'coffee'.


They also have a bull jumping ceremony like the Hamer people, but the ceremony is strictly private and no tourists are allowed. Korcho is a very beautiful small village on top of a cliff with a fantastic panoramic overview of the Omo river.
