Nyangatom necklaces Ethiopia

Nyangatom people live on the Omo river banks in south Ethiopia. The girls wear tons of necklaces. The more she has, the better it is, of course!

They are both in Sudan and Ethiopia.

They have a nice believe: when they see stars in the sky, they think it's the fire in front the house of some remote families. When they see meteorits, they think the family is on the move.

They have a main ennemy: the Dasanech tribe. Many tribes in Omo area call the Nyangatom "bumé", which means "the ones who stinks"...
