Bodi Adornments, Omo Valley, Ethiopia, Africa by Steven Goethals Cultures Du Monde, World Cultures, African Tribes, African Art, African Safari, African Style, Black Is Beautiful, Beautiful People, Or Noir

Bodi adornments - Ethiopia

The Bodi ( or Mekan / Me'en ) live near the Omo river and are the neighbours of the Mursi. Some women wear a small clayplate under their lower lip. This is a statussymbol and means that they have had at least 3 children. The Bodi are under a lot of pressure of the sugarcane factories that are being build in their territory. © Steven Goethals Join me on Facebook
