The Himba from Namibia
While in Africa, I had the amazing opportunity to spend an afternoon with the Himba. The majority do not speak English so we had a guide/translator who grew up in the community but had the opportunity to go to school. Within the tribe they choose about five children only within each generation that will have the chance to go to school. Their lives are so far removed from what any typical person could imagine. The experience is hard to put into words really. Although the adults were a bit apprehensive of our presence, the children were beyond elated. We played away the afternoon and the air was filled with excited giggles.
