Indigenous Tribes in the Southern Omo Valley of Ethiopia have existed for hundreds of years without much outside influence. They have cultivated their customs and rituals and have survived nature and mankind’s brutality. Yet today the outside world has infiltrated their balance and their survival is at risk. They must either change or fight a world with different values and moralities to their way of life. Ethically we have a responsibility to be aware of the dangers and benefits we as fellow tribes have on each other.
