The people of Wolayta had their own kingdom for hundreds of years with kings (called "Kawo") and a monarchical administration. The earlier name of the kingdom was allegedly "Damot" - this was said to include the south, south-east, south-west and part of the central region of present Ethiopia. The ruler was King (Kawo) Motolomi who is mentioned in the religious book Gedle Teklehaimanot, as an invader of the north and the king to whom was surrendered the mother of the Ethiopian saint, Tekle Haymanot. Some assume that the saint was the son of this king. After the defeat which overcame the northern part of its territory the kingdom was reduced to its present size and the name became the Kingdom of Wolayta. It remained thus an independent kingdom for hundreds of years until the expansion of Emperor Menelik II into the regions south of Shewa during the early 1890s. The war of conquest has been described by Bahru Zewde as "one of the bloodiest campaigns of the whole period of expansion", and Wolayta oral tradition holds that 118,000 Welayta and 90,000 Shewan troops died in the fighting. • • • Photo by Rod Waddington • • • Sarah Vaughan, "Ethnicity and Power in Ethiopia" (University of Edinburgh: Ph.D. Thesis, 2003), p. 253.

25 de Maio é dia da África (anteriormente chamado Dia da Liberdade de África e Dia da Libertação de África) é a comemoração anual da fundação da Organização da Unidade Africana (OUA), hoje conhecida como União Africana. Essa reunião aconteceu em 1963 na Etiópia país onde fica localizado o Rio Omo, rio esse que cruza o país e mais ao sul, perto da fronteira com o Kenya, está o Omo Valley - o local que despertou meu interesse, virou por anos objeto de estudo, de onde surgiu inspiração para a série prematuramente batizada de #sérieafricans Atingi muitas pessoas e alcancei mts lugares a partir dessa série, personagens de um local imaginado, desenvolvi uma narrativa idealizando um lugar que nunca pisei, mas que escolhi como homenagem a antepassados e também como uma projeção para nosso futuro, que me levou a série #afrovalley - Quando Omo Valley encontra a cultura afropunk. Esse trabalho é de 2019, está disponível e fez parte da minha última exposição chamada "O Risco de Ser". #oriscodeser #omovalleytribes #afropunk #afro

So happy to hear that the Nyangatom people are safe and well during these crazy times. They are such lovely people and I can’t wait to spend more time in their villages when it’s responsibly safe for me to. This women first caught my eye as she was wearing everything traditional except for her plastic white sneakers 👟! I did take a full length photo but then took a close up as she had the most amazing friendly eyes. I love both those photos but I also love this angle which shows her traditional accessories. . . . #nyangatom #omovalley #omovalleytribes #omovalleyethiopia #omoriver #omovalleyphotographytrip #ethiopia #ethiopianculture #ethiopiantravel #portrait #africa #portraitphotography #passionpassport #africantribeswoman #tribes #africanportraits #travel #travelphotography #travelafrica #travelmoments #australianphotographer #styleinspo #fashion #culturaltourism #africa #jewellerydesign #phototours #peoplewhoadventure

While wandering around during a lull period during an incredible event of the Hamar manhood ceremony, I observed some of the attendees. If this gentleman sporting a double row of bullets belt isn’t a show of force, I am not sure what is! Perhaps he left his kalashnikov at home this trip. All the better for us observers this day. I have yet to share. The photos from this ceremony, which was quieter exceptional, but I will shortly. . . . #kalashnikov #bullets #bulletbelt #hamartribe #striped #observers #manhood #manhoodceremony #ceremony #tribal #showofforce #strength #presence #africanceremonies #headdress #copperbangles #bestdressed #omovalleytribes #ethiopian #omovalley #travelphotograpy #exploringtheworld #worldwide #peopleoftheworld #remotetravel

The name Arbore is used by the inhabitants of two of the four villages, Gandaraba and Kulama, whereas the inhabitants of Eegude and Murale refer to themselves as Marle, Arbore being the term traditionally employed by anthropologists and by the Ethiopian government. The Arbore practice pastoralism, sorghum cultivation, seasonal fishing and hunting and engage in a wide regional network of bond friendship for the exchange of gifts. In 1996 their population numbered 3,840. Their economy of subsistence depends largely on the periodical floods of the river. • • • Photographer @trevcole • • • Tadesse, Wolde Gossa; Peller, Anni (2003). "Arbore ethnography".

Questa è l'unica che pubblicherò sul tema della fustigazione delle ragazze Hamer durante la cosiddetta festa del "Salto del Toro". Le ragazze Hamer in età da marito dimostrano il loro coraggio facendosi frustare appositamente provocando di continuo chi ha la frusta in mano e questo per dare un loro immagine al ragazzo che sta per diventare uomo. Una tradizione che nel rispetto per gli Hamer non mi permetto di giudicare. Non pubblico certe foto per non urtare la sensibilità delle persone e se le mie foto vi sembrano belle gustatevele senza dare definizioni. Sono tutte immagini di strada, attimi di vita colti al volo senza alcuna pretesa. Grazie e buona serata a tutti *********************************** This is the only one I will publish on the subject of the flogging of Hamer girls during the so-called "Salto del Toro" festival. Hamer girls of marriageable age show their courage by being whipped specifically by continually provoking who has the whip in hand and this to give their image to the boy who is about to become a man. A tradition that in respect for the Hamer I do not allow myself to judge. I do not publish certain photos so as not to offend the sensitivity of people and if my photos seem beautiful, enjoy them without giving definitions. They are all street images, moments of life caught on the fly without any pretense. Thanks and good evening to all ************************'************ #ethiopia #omovalley #omoriver #africa #addisababa #travel #habesha #travelphotography #omovalleytribes #ethiopian #tribe #photography #tribes #travelgram #photooftheday #saltodeltoro #wanderlust #portrait #tribesofethiopia #etiopia #instatravel #portraitphotography #omorivervalley #lalibela #omo #nature #people_infinity #travelethiopia #travelblogger #hamertribe

Il salto del toro. Se vuoi essere considerato uomo da tutta la tribù hamer devi saltare il toro!!! Se superi questa prova potrai scegliere una ragazza per moglie, avere la tua capanna, la tua famiglia e delle capre ma se non la superi non potrai avere niente e rimarrai un ragazzo per sempre o quasi agli occhi di tutti ********************************** The jump of the bull. If you want to be considered a man by the whole Hmer tribe you have to jump the bull !!! If you pass this test you can choose a girl for a wife, have your hut, your family and goats but if you do not pass it you will not have anything and you will remain a boy forever or almost in everyone's eyes *********************************** #ethiopia #omovalley #omoriver #africa #addisababa #travel #habesha #travelphotography #omovalleytribes #ethiopian #tribe #photography #tribes #travelgram #photooftheday #saltodeltoro #wanderlust #portrait #tribesofethiopia #etiopia #instatravel #portraitphotography #omorivervalley #lalibela #omo #nature #people_infinity #travelethiopia #travelblogger #hamertribe

A BEAUTIFUL BOY. Nothing complicated about this. Just an image of a happy Chappy. If I remember correctly, I think I had shared my breakfast biscuits with him and he had crawled into my tent ( at my invitation ) to get more. The HAMMER children are simply delicious and sang for hours later that night in the pitch black. No moon. No light. No stars. Maybe they can see in the dark, like cats? #hamerofEthiopia #Ethiopian_tribes #The_Hamer_of_Ethiopia #The_hamer_people #hamertribes #tribalimages #tribalcustoms #Omovalleytribes #thehammer #Omo_river_Ethiopia #Omovalley #Southern_Ethiopia #tribalphotography #remoteexpeditions #Africantribes #hamerportraits #tribalportraits #black_beauties #tribalimages.

A CHISELED HAMMER! I have posted images of the wonderful HAMMER people before, their hair decorated with desert roses in recognition of my second visit to the Omo Valley. However whilst under lockdown I discovered this shot and thought I would share it because it shows her beautiful chiseled features. These people are so handsome they took my breath away. #hamerofEthiopia #Ethiopian_tribes #The_Hamer_of_Ethiopia #The_hamer_people #hamertribes #tribalimages #tribalcustoms #Omovalleytribes #thehammer #Omo_river_Ethiopia #Omovalley #Southern_Ethiopia #tribalphotography #remoteexpeditions #Africantribes #hamerportraits #tribalportraits #black_beauties #tribalimages.

According to Suri oral tradition, they came to their present territory about 200 years ago from the West (Sudan-Ethiopia border lands). First they came to the Akobo (eastwards from the Nile then they move in two direction from lower part of kidhoa bo and from upper part from kidoa bo to mountain shologoy . These migrants also absorbed local groups. Since the late 1890s, the Suri were constantly harassed by the Ethiopian imperial troops and northern settlers. As a result of this (politico-economically driven) harassment, numerous Suri went to the Boma Plateau in Sudan, especially after 1925. • • • Photography @trevcole • • • Abbink, Jon "Ethnic Conflict in the 'Tribal Zone': The Dizi and Suri in Southern Ethiopia", Journal of Modern African Studies, 31 (1993), pp. 675–682
