Girls of Namibia the most beautiful girls.
It is believed that the girls of Namibia are the most beautiful girls of the African continent.
We are mostly interested in Himba tribe.
This tribe is not affected by civilization and Christianity. They’ve managed to keep their traditions and beliefs.
Their customs have not changed.
For example people there still pay three cows for a wife. Himba houses are simple, conical constructions made of bars connected with palm leaves and plastered with clay and dung.
The Himba breed cattle and goats. The responsibility for milking the cows lies with the women.
Women take care of the children, and one woman will take care of another woman’s children. Women tend to perform more labor-intensive work than men do, such as carrying water to the village and building homes.
Men handle the political tasks and legal trials Members of an extended family typically dwell in a homestead, “a small, circular hamlet of huts and work shelters” that surrounds “an okuruwo (ancestral fire) and a central livestock enclosure.
” Both the fire and the livestock are closely tied to their belief in ancestor worship, the fire representing ancestral protection and the livestock allowing “proper relations between human and ancestor.”
The Himba wear little clothing, but the girls of Namibia are famous for covering themselves with otjize, a mixture of butter fat and ochre, possibly to protect themselves from the sun.
The mixture gives their skins a reddish tinge.
This symbolizes earth’s rich red color and the blood that symbolizes life, and is consistent with the Himba ideal of beauty.
Women and girls of Namibia braid each other’s hair that they extend with plastic hair that they usually have to purchase, and cover it except the ends, in their ochre mixture.
Modern clothes are scarce, but generally go to the men when available.
Traditionally both men and women go topless and wear skirts or loincloths made of animal skins in various colors.
Adult women wear beaded anklets to protect their legs from venomous animal bites.
