Cow dung collars, elaborate 'squid' hairstyles and wives that can be swapped for cattle: Rare photos of Angola's tribal people


Photographer Eric Lafforgue travelled to Angola and met some of the fascinating tribal peoples living there
Among them are the Mwila whose women spend their lives wearing thick collars made from mud and beads
They also wear ornate 'squid' hairstyles which are held in place using a mixture of ochre, cow dung and butter
Other tribes include the Mucubal where women are traded for cows and men can have multiple wives
The Muhimba, who live in the south, are related to Namibia's Himba people and share many of the same traditions
Angola recently emerged from a civil war which left people scattered and the countryside littered with land mines

From the elaborate collars worn by the Mwila to the square hats of the Mucubal people, Angola is home to some of the most fascinating - and beautiful - people on the planet.

 

But thanks to a vicious civil war that ended less than a decade ago, little is known about them. Now a new set of photos by snapper Eric Lafforgue is set to offer a glimpse into their unusual lives and traditions.

 

In Chibia on the central plain of Lubango, he met the Mwila tribe, where women, no matter what their age, sport thick neck braces that come in different colours depending on marital status.

Stunning
