"Himba People"  The Himba people are an ethnic group of about 20,000 to 50,000 people living in northern Namibia. The women are famous for covering themselves with otjize, a mixture of butter fat and ochre, possibly to protect themselves from the sun. This symbolizes earth’s rich red color and the blood that symbolizes life, and is consistent with the Himba ideal of beauty.

Meisjes dragen hun haar in twee vlechten over hun voorhoofd; in de puberteit vlechten ze hun haar in kleine staartjes die ingesmeerd worden met geitenvet en oker.
