[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] Guarding sorghum fields along the banks of the Omo River below. View from Kara (Karo) settlement set high on the east bank of the lower Omo River in southwestern Ethiopia. The clay hairbun with ostrich feathers signifies bravery and the killing of an enemy or a dangerous wild animal. The Nyangatom (past enemies, current allies) are established on other side of river. The river curls south and carves its course through the volcanic-rock floor of the Great Rift Valley for another 50-60 kilometres before pouring into Lake Turkana at the Kenyan border.
