Summary
This program is devoted to the women of a warrior tribe whose origin is ancient but unknown and which lives today in eastern Niger. It shows the life of the people, focusing on the traditions according to which the women live, behave, and make themselves beautiful-the complicated painting that constitutes makeup, the even more complicated hairstyles and their meanings, the role of facial scars and jewelry; the same standards of beauty are applied to objects.
