Daasanach Tribe Young Man

The Daasanach are an ethnic group of Ethiopia, Kenya and Sudan. Their main homeland is in the Debub Omo Zone, Ethiopia. And around the North end of Lake Turkana, Kenya.

They are traditionally a pastoral people by tradition, but in recent years have become primarily agropastoral. The Daasanach are a highly egalitarian society, with a social system involving age sets and clan lineages - both of which involve strong reciprocity relations. Women wear a pleated cowskin skirt and necklaces and bracelets, men wear only a checkered cloth around their waist.
