1 review of Itag Tribes

An interesting tribe not westernized

In Itag the most interesting is the people. In this village close to the border of Sudan and Ethiopia one can learn about the customs of tribes like the Nuer and Anuak , as these tribes that have not been westernized as much as the refugees living in Gambela. In Itag there are still tribal customs that left me amazed.

I was amazed, and the guide told us that it was a ritual to give luck, so Jorge had no choice but to feel grateful.
