ONE WITH THE EARTH
Bena people are an ethnic group in Ethiopia historically related to ancient Egypt. Just like most of the indigenous tribes in the lower Omo Valley, the Bena practice ritual dancing and singing and they live in continuous contact with the earth.⠀
In this picture Dobi, that like most natives doesn’t know her age, is standing proudly among the thin stems of her sorghum plantation, a very important crop, used for food and especially for the production of home brewed beer.
