Meet the Mwila people of Angola whose women cover their hair with cow dung
Angola has some of the most fascinating ethnic groups and cultures in the world. In southern Angola, there are the Mwila or Mumuhuila people. They are said to be a semi-nomadic ethnic group who are of Bantu origins.
Another way the women portray the Mwila culture is to accessorise themselves with elaborate jewelry and the way they dress. The women are particularly known for wearing thick collars made from mud and beads.
Every period of a woman or girl’s life determines the type of necklace they wear and the reason why they wear that type at the time.
