Beaded Necklace – Borana Tribe – Southern Ethiopia

Approx. cm. 30,0 high x cm. 24,0 width (11.81″ x 9.45″). Small damages due to use.

The Borana, Gabbra and Sakuye peoples are sub-ethnic groups within the Oromo people group, and share language and culture. Some groups from the Oromo people from southern Ethiopia entered northern Kenya fduring the 16th century. These Borana groups then differentiated into the cattle-keeping, while the Gabbra and Sakuye specialized in camel-keeping. They lived together, each with different pastoral focus.

Piece directly collected in Omo Valley. We guarantee that this item has been tribally used.
