Nijer'de bulunan Wodaabe kabilesinde her yılın bir döneminde yapılan Gerwol Festivali'nde herkes dans eder ve bazı erkekler evli olmalarına rağmen başka kadınları kaçırırlar.Eğer kadının kocası yeni çifti yakalamazsa ve kadın da bu birlikteliği reddetmezse evlilikleri kabile tarafından kabul edilir.

eden_birindwa Here the young Wodaabe men, with elaborate make-up, feathers and other adornments, perform the Yaake: dances and songs to impress marriageable women. The male beauty ideal of the Wodaabe stresses tallness, white eyes and teeth; the men will often roll their eyes and show their teeth to emphasize these characteristics... The men dance on tip toes to make themselves look taller and show off their widened eyes and teeth at the same time. The ability to roll the eyes and grin at the same time is considered attractive. The wodaabe are nomads who live along the southern edge of the Sahara. What fascinating people. #wodaabe Men dress up, women do the judging. Hahaha very unusual 5d

tonecentric The Wodaabe or Bororoare people are a proud traditionally nomadic cattle herders and traders from a small subgroup of the Fulani ethnic group who are scattered across the sub-Saharan Sahelian steppe in Niger, West Africa. The Wodaabe speak the Fula language and don’t use a written language. In the Fula language, woda means “taboo”, and Wodaabe means “people of the taboo” which could be easily translated as “those who respect taboos” It is alleged that the Wodaabe people’s origins could be traced back to two brothers, Ali and Degereejo. Mostly known for their their beauty (both men and women), elaborate attire and rich cultural ceremonies, the exact origins of the Wadaabe people are heavily debatable as scholars differ with some claiming that they originated in the upper Nile basin and some saying they came from Ethiopia, while others maintain that they came from Egypt. The Bororo tribe attracts attention because of their traditional value of beauty and homogeneity which they have successfully kept in their group mainly because they largely keep to themselves and rarely marry outside of their own group, which enables them to keep their cultural and genetic identity pure. Labelled as the architect of beauty pageants, the Wodaabe people consider themselves to be the most beautiful people in the world. The Bororo have been able to resist most colonialisation, imperialism and modernism that is tormenting Africa today because of their nomadic lifestyle.
