The Gerewol in Chad. An extraordinary festival once a year where the younger men of the Wodaabe (in this case Sudosukai) beautify themselves to attract girls. They dance almost incessantly for almost a week and young girls choose from the line of men who are performing a Yaake dance. It is a polyamorous society. When chosen the liaison may be very short term, a night for example, or it may develop into a longer relationship. The Wodaabe are truly nomadic, moving with their cattle in an endless cycle which follows the rains in Sahelian sub-Saharan Africa. #Repost@trevcole
Did you know that #FeathersTale eco-community is guarded by 23 Maasai warriors?
Due to superstition and voodoo practices special needs children and those who are born with #albinism get kidnapped by gangs and sold for money.
For this reason Feathers Tale Children's Village needs protection by trained Maasai warriors, also 100 dogs add an extra layer of protection as the children’s best friends.
Last year our founder @jonny_sunshine_ibiza participated in some traditional dancing with the Maasai. Enjoy ✌🏼 Filmed and edited by @in432productions#Maasai#Tanzania#ChildreninCrisis

Himba village, Namibia || Himba women dye their skin with a red ointment made from cow fat and red ocher powder. This ointment, whose coating is part of the beauty criteria for women also protect them from the heat of the sun, dry air and insects. Most thing the ancestors did had a purpose.

I really like this shot. We went net hunting with the Ba’aka tribe in the Central African Republic. The hunt was successful and they caught 2 porcupines. We witnessed the entire process. This is a random shot, while they were distributing the meat. The owner of the net always gets the head.
