Karrayu girl smiling, Ethiopia. The Karrayyu are a pastoralist tribe from Ethiopia living in the Awash Valley. Struggle for grazing lands and water resources is a constant and daily challenge for the Karrayyus. This results in conflicts with neighbouring tribes. Clashes between herders from these tribes are pretty common, and sometimes people even get shot. Unfortunately the Karrayyu are also famous for the female genital cutting the women have to face and suffer from. ©Eric Lafforgue
