Girl From Menit Tribe With Facial Tattoos, Jemu, Omo Valley, Ethiopia


The menit tribe lives in the Omo Valley, in Ethiopia ; They are he Surma tribe's neighbours and are often mistaken for them ; Yet, these two tribes donât get on well ; The Menit are indeed closer to the Dizi, whom they meet in Tum, on the market ; Women have facial scarifications and men generally walk with a long and thin phallic-shaped wooden stick ; The Menit are currently threatened and displaced by the Ethiopian government ; Their land is taken to be sold, notably to foreign companies ; © Eric Lafforgue www.ericlafforgue.com
