Hamar Tribe. Bull Jumping Ceremony. Omo Valley, Ethiopia. Although, the ceremony is held as a rite of passage for a young boy to transition to manhood, it was the Hamar women who held me captivated. Strong, defiant & intimidating. I found these women mesmerising. #someonesomewhere #hamartribe #bulljumpingceremony #ethiopia #omovalley #hamarwomen #extraordinaryerhiopia

The beauty of the Hamer women is astonishing. They use butter and ochre to style their hair and wear elaborated goat skin embroidered with colorful beads as skirts, magic touch: an ankle bracelet with bells for the grand finale 😍 #respecttheculture #culturalencounters #hamertribe #beauty #omovalley #bulljumpingceremony #preparation #travel #travelphotography #africa #ethiopia

Eu coloquei alguns vídeos nos stories mostrando um pouco mais sobre essa parte da cerimônia. As cicatrizes nas costas são motivo de orgulho para as mulheres Hamer e representam o amor e devoção delas pelos homens da tribo e a sua força. Confesso que pra mim foi difícil assistir essa parte da cerimônia, mas elas em nenhum momento esboçavam reações de dor e imploravam por mais chicotadas. Por vezes é um desafio estar diante de uma cultura tão distinta, mas cada um analisa as situações a partir das suas crenças e do seu conjunto de valores. Os certos e errados não são conceitos absolutos e viajar muitas vezes significa se confrontar com situações que desafiam a nossa lógica e as nossas verdades.

Two Banna matars (boys who had recently performed the bull jumping) had their faces painted, whilst the local women get drunk on sorgum, jump around and blow horns in preparation for a Banna bull jumping ceremony.

#TBT THISNIS THE CRAZIEST THING IVE EVER SEEN! TURN PHONE SIDEWAYS!!! Earlier this year I traveled through Ethiopia. Some amazing locals with amazing connections somehow got me to a Bull Jumping Ceremony Of the Hamer Tribe. What I saw will stay with me for the rest of my life. The bull Jumping Ceremony is a rite of passage where boys become men but also their female relatives FIGHT TO GET WHIPPED!!! They have scars and blood running down their backs. I’m so grateful to have had such access to an intimate ceremony. It was shocking to see these women being whipped but fascinating to watch them mock their whippers and fight for more. I’ll post more about this on my site soon - there’s a lot more to it than what you see in the video. Anyway, I hope this poorly shot video gives you a rough idea of what I saw. . . . . . . . . #ethiopia #hamertribe #southomovalley #hamertribe #bulljumpingceremony #dontkilleli #elinewell #roam #feedyouradventure #stayandwander #lifeofadventure #welltravelled #mytinyatlas #theoutdoorpassion #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #themoderndayexplorer #momentkeepers #neverstopexploring #traveldiary_aroundtheworld

Lucky enough to attend the bull jumping ceremony. A boy has to jump over the bulls 4 times both ways, before he can get married. This is not a tourist event, it’s strictly cultural #omo #bulljumpingceremony #turmi #lucky #comingofage #tribesoftheomo #hamertribe #hamerwayoflife

Afrikan dena negoziatu behar izaten da, eta hau ere pena merezi izan zuen beste "plus" bat gehiago izan zen, noski. Hamer gazte honek , nerabe izatetik heldu izateko, duintasun proba, #bulljumpingceremony deiturikoa, pasa behar izan zuen lehenik. Bilusik jarri eta behien bizkar gainetik pasa erori gabe hainbat aldiz, tribu dena kantaka eta saltoka zuelarik, eta nola ez gu turista kuriosoak alboan txaloka irribartsu 😃 #euskaldunakmunduan #euskalherria #euskaraz #euskalinsta #euskarabentura #euskara #euskagram #euskarazbizi #euskalduna #igereuskalherria #igereuskara #euskalkultura #mundua #afrika #etiopia #hamertribuak

After leaving the Mursi, we were lucky enough to see a ‘bull jumping ceremony’ being performed by the Banna tribe (who are culturally very similar to the Hamar, whom we later stayed with). I skeptically assumed that this ceremony was being performed solely for tourists, and I think on some occasions this might well be the case. What we witnessed however seemed to be a genuine celebration that the Banna people were tolerant enough to allow us to attend. • • • • • #bulljumping #bulljumpingceremony #hamartribe #bannatribe #worldcolours_people #african_portraits #lensculture #people_infinity #humanity_shots_ #people #people_infinity_ #culture #travel #travelphotography #ethiopia #ethiopianculture #ethiopiantravel

As part of the bull jumping ceremony, the women of the tribe are whipped repeatedly by their male relatives with long wooden whips. The practice is embraced by all. In fact, the women taunt the men and ask them to be whipped. It is seen as a sign of love and loyalty from the women to the men, and the former wear the resulting scars with pride. After the ceremony, the men are forever indebted to them.

This was the young man that did the bull jumping. I know, he doesn’t look like a young man. He more looked like a frightened child. He did make it though across the backs of the bulls. I was impressed and he was relieved. #africageo #africanamazing #african_portraits #loves_africa #loves_people #wu_africa #loves_portrait #portraitmood #portrait_captures #sight_people #ig_shotz #ig_people #ig_global_life #ig_global_people #ig_respect #discoverculture #total_cultures #hamer #bulljumpingceremony #bulljumper #omovalley #omovalleytribes #tribesofethiopia

#BULLJUMPINGCEREMONY: I now have a more indepth understanding of the ukilu ceremony (bull jumping) among the #Hamer and Kara (Karo). Here are a couple images from this important marriage rite of passing that we saw the other day. I am pictured with Damo, who is later jumping a series of bulls 4x in a #Hamervillage. #SNPFieldResearch2019 #SaveNubiaProject #SNP #AdvancingTheResearch #AncientKush #Archaeology #AfricanHistory #NileRiverDamProject #Floodingourhistory #UpperAtbaraDam #SouthernEthiopia #JubaSouthSudan
