A tribe in Namibia called Himba are like no other people because of the culture that distinguishes them. The culture is so different that many people will see it as really weird. They are usually called or also known as the Ovahimba or Omhimba people and they live in the Kunene region in Namibia. You may be wondering why this tribe is so weird, here are some things to note about their culture.
What differentiates this tribe from most other tribes is the fact that they give intercourse for free to their guests and also they also give bead necklaces to newborn babies.
The people work hard to ensure that their beliefs and culture is not contaminated in any form by outsiders. You can see why we are curious to know these people who have not accepted civilization.
This tribe deals mostly with livestock breeding and farmers while their women gather firewood, cook, and serve meals and sources for freshwater. Some of the villagers are socially inclined and very religious, reversing, and worshiping their ancient gods. Polygamy is welcome and young girls are married off at an early age.
Though polygamy is not peculiar in Africa, it is practiced widely on the continent. However, not taking their bath is strange. Before you are taking aback, the reason why they don’t bath with water is because of the harsh climatic situation in their region.
The Himba tribe in Namibia lives in one of the worse climate conditions; the harsh desert climate and the lack of potable water are the reasons why this tribe has difficulty getting a bath.
Because the do not bath has no effect on how beautiful they are. Since they find it difficult to bath, they make use of red sand or clay on their skins and then bath in smoke daily. They do this to maintain their hygiene. Charcoal is dropped into a bowl filled with different kinds of herbs and the people bow over this smoking bowl and because of heat, the body perspires and helps in washing the body.
The people are friendly to strangers and visitors but will not allow any interference in their culture.* BEST DEALS & OFFERS*
