lynetteletigre This is a woman from the Wodaabe tribe. Wodaabe is a nomadic tribe that moves around Niger, Nigeria and other countries in west Africa. Most of the people are cattle herders.
Their ideals of beauty in the society is to have long limbs, white eyes and white teeth. They believe that the paint on their skin should be done to emphasis the individuals natural facial symmetry.
The women in the Wodaabe tribe often enjoy making jewellery and finding crafts to decorate themselves.
I really believe the people of the Wodaabe tribe understands what it means to be free.

Wodaabe: Once a year, on the Southern edge of the Sahara Desert as many as a thousand #Wodaabe nomads gather for a courtship ceremony (#Geerewol). The men display their charm and beauty for the women judges. They believe that through their eyes marriages are made, so expression with ones eyes is key. #africa #thisisafrica #marriage #courtship #tradition #travel
Djajeejo, Winner of the charm dance.
