Mumuhuila tribe old woman - Angola

See the muscles she has! It's easy to imagine how many tons she carried in her life: wood, water...

Mumuilas (or Muhilla or Mumuhuila ) live in south Angola, and are very shy with foreigners, as they do not see any tourists in the area! The girl on the picture wears a giant necklace as she is married.

On the head, she has a special mix of cow dungs, herbs, and mud.

Huila area, Hale village
