Photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher captured the everyday life of the Dinka tribe, which is a Nilotic ethnic group in Southern Sudan. The following photos featured on the Tekey website offered this tidbit about a most fascinating civilization:
The Dinka are a Nilotic ethnic group from South Sudan. They live from the tenth century on both sides of the Nile River and speak a language belonging to the Nilo-Saharan group. They are about three million and are divided into about 21 groups, each with its own legitimate leader.
Although farming has always been its main economic resource, there has never missed an important agricultural and fishing activity that allowed them to be self-sufficient in food. Their trade and light industry are increasingly gaining importance.
