for most of you, it is difficult ti imagine living in a remote, desert area of Northern Namibia (you know where is it?) far away from the so called "civilization". The only toys, this young Himba boy is able to play with are: a piece of wood, a stone, a dry insect or an animal bone; The Himba are indigenous peoples with an estimated population of about 50,000 people living in northern Namibia, in the Kunene Region (formerly Kaokoland) and on the other side of the Kunene River in Angola.The OvaHimba are a semi-nomadic, pastoralist people, culturally distinguishable from the Herero people in northern Namibia and southern Angola. They are predominantly livestock farmers who breed fat-tailed sheep and goats, but count their wealth in the number of their cattle. Women and girls tend to perform more labor-intensive work than men and boys do.
