THE HIMBA FROM NAMIBIA - 63255

Length: 1 x 60 mins

Price: $0.00

The Himba live in Namibia, Africa. They live as their ancestors have done for thousands of years. The women decorate themselves in not much more than red clay. Their hair is platted into shapes with the clay. The redness of the clay makes their appearance stunning. This film has two main stories. Two young boys are circumcised in a path to manhood. Two people are to marry. The marriage was arranged before the girl was born. The boy also had no choice in his future bride. This is the culture of the Himba.
