Product Description:

As the second part of a trilogy the Kwegu documentary shows the life that the tribes live in Southwestern Ethiopia. The Kwegu tribe is forced to communicate with those in the outside world as a result of both famine and drought. Cultivators and hunters, in small groups, are seen by the Mursi people as being an inferior tribe to the Kwegus due to their lack of cows. Though the Mursi are dependant on the Kwegu tribe when it comes to gathering and hunting, as well as services for metalworking, they do become nervous around water. The Kwegus help out the Mursi by transporting them from one end of the Omo to the other via a ferry. The reason they transport them there is so that they can take advantage of the grazing grounds and fertile planting. To thank the Kwegu tribe, the Mursi tribe give cattle to the Kwegus and protects them as well. They need their cattle safe and easy to access for the purpose of completing bride-price rituals that the tribe believes in. This documentary is included in the series of Disappearing World DVDs.
