Hi, I’m Abeba! Ujulu and I also went to the Southern Nations and Nationalities Peoples Region (SNNPR) with Teacher Abdu. We managed to film some of the 56 nationalities in the region showing their traditional ceremonies, food and dances. We met the MURSI people with their impressive facial jewelry and the DASENECH people who put red mud and butter in their hair for decoration. We saw many different types of body painting rituals and were introduced to the KONSO people who have very clever farming methods using terraces. During our journey we also discovered the multi functional use of the NSETTA (banana type fruit) plant and the ALABA people’s tall cooling hats! The diverse culture of the region is amazing and we were so lucky to experience just some of them on our visit.
