Distant relatives I finally got to meet.
The Ma’Ati nation meets the Mursi nation. Finally in a place I began to understand myself. If this pic moves you, please go to the Rift and Omo Valley yourself. These beautiful civilizations, which we’re racing to have again, are under threat due to “development” and destructive tourism practices. Those in the Diaspora have the means to help our brothers and sisters to continue to live in dignity instead of being forced to become the spectacles in human zoos.
