Ohma - the inofficial chief of the Himba Village This is Ohma. She is probably about 79 years old. She belongs to the Himba people, one of the last semi-nomadic tribes in Africa. She was the wife of the chief and is still the unofficial authority in the village although her son has taken over a while ago. But nothing happens withouth Ohma being ok with it...!

kaitsubasaurus: Traditional Maldivian. Photo by Shifaz Huthee “One did not simply put on a Dhivehi Libaas. It was a symbol. The outspoken celebration of a girl becoming a woman. To wear one was to show pride in, and embrace one’s feminine-hood. Worn only on special occasions like your wedding ceremony or in the presence of royalty, boavalhu elhi libaas was the ultimate image of beauty and perfection among Maldivians.”
