    called golwani. On her waist there are matching
    hoops which are called lighabi. Lighabi are worn

    larger versions, and is finally discarded after
    her initiation into womanhood.

    earth and animal fat when the child is only a few
    days old.

Lip Plates
  • To explain the picture before, Lip Plates are
    very common in many African tribes. At a very
    young age children would have these plates,
    which are made out of bone, inserted into their
    bottom lip to create a large gap. They keep this
    in until they gap is as large as they desire and
    then they change the plates every so often. Once
    these plates are inserted, the lip cannot ever be
    shrunken back to its normal size. These plates
    can range from any shape and size

This is a picture of a Surma woman with her lip
plate taken out.
27
Turkana
  • The women in this picture is a Turkana single
    woman. Her tribe is located in Kenya. The Turkana
    men believe that, "It's the things a woman wears
    that make her beautiful." A multi layered beaded
    necklace with three back pendants indicates this
    girl's availability for marriage.
