*Please note: I am always very cautious of objectifying our people, especially the Himba, and not perpetuating human zoos.  However, I hope these pics can at least teach us (me at least) the specifics of the detail of Himba beauty routines, styles, adornment  and some of the functions I had not known before.  For eg, that thick, metal ankle bracelets also work to protect against animal bites.  If anything, I admire their styles greatly as they are in line with all diasporic African traditions, from hair to jewelry.
