Nyangatom Tribe - Omo Valley Ethiopia - 2019

Nyangatom women are known for their numerous strands of colorful beaded necklaces (usually white, green, yellow and red). They wear these heavy necklaces day and night and never remove them! The necklaces were traditionally made from dried seeds and cowrie shells which some of the older women still wear, but most necklaces these days are made from glass or resin beads.
