Example text

Zulu Warriors The Zulus are the largest black ethnic group in South Africa. Before the 19th century, they grew crops and herded cattle in the grassland areas of the region. In the early 19th century, they fiercely resisted the Europeans’ attempt to take away their lands and resources, forming a Zulu empire with neighboring Nguni peoples under their leader Shaka. However, they eventually lost their independence, and today, most rural Zulu people earn a living as laborers on farms, or working in South Africa’s big cities.

The Dinka identifies closely with his calf, hanging cow’s-tail tassels from its horns, just as he decorates his own ivory bracelets with these tassels. He also The Nilotic men decorate their braided hair with rodent’s teeth. The man on the left carries a troumbache, a saber with many curved blades.

Whatever the cause, older women among tribes, such as the Kichepo, still wear these plates, never removing them in front of strangers. Today, younger women of the tribe refuse to wear the plates. Dinka men wear tight corsets made with beads of different colors, which are a sign of their age and marital status. Men from the age of 15 up to 25 wear red and black corsets, while those from the age of 25 to 30 wear pink and purple corsets; those who are over 30 years old wear yellow corsets.
