Kenya: Fighting for Beads in kenyan tribes
The Samburu and Rendille live in northern Kenya. Beaded adornments are worn mainly for their aesthetic purposes, but can also signify specific relationships or mark special events. Beads are not only part of tradition, but a sophisticated and evolving fashion!
Ethiopia: Beauty and recycled trash as jewelry
Caps from beer and Coke bottles have found an aesthetic purpose among the Dassanech tribe people who reside on the Omo riverbank in Ethiopia. Southern Ethiopian tribes recycle everything. Old watches bracelets can make great additions to necklaces for Hamer while the Mursi collected and recycled syringes caps after a vaccination campain as necklaces.
India: The Human Gods
The performers of Theyyam are all members of the indigenous tribal community in India. Only in Kerala do both the upper-caste Brahmins and lower-caste tribals share an important role in a major form of worship. The term Theyyam comes from Devam or God. People of these districts consider the performers of the Theyyam itself to be deities who can bestow them with blessings.
