The Wodaabe [electronic resource]

The Wodaabe of the Sahara are among the last true nomads. Anthropologist Mette Bovin travels with the Wodaabe as they follow their herds in an endless migration across African borders, resisting pressures to settle down and lead a "normal" life. Though their herds have been devastated by drought, they intend to hold on to their way of life, in which ritual and taboo play a major part. As the Wodaabe also value male beauty, the men adorn themselves with makeup.
