Hammar Tribal Young Girl-Tales Of A Forgotten Land
The Hamar people are one of the biggest tribal groups, living in remote mountain areas of lower Oma Valley, many women cover their hair with a mixture of red-ocher colouring and animal fat, then style it in plaits over their foreheads. I personally witnessed how they make stylish goatskin skirts, which are longer in the back than in the front and resemble the tail of a gazelle. They wear no cloth on top part and often wear organic ornaments. Their major source of earning is dependent on raising goats, sheep, and cows which they trade in weekly markets in Dimeka and Turmi in Ethiopia.
