The Mursi tribe live in the remote part of southwest Ethiopia. These people are part of what national geographic calls the "last frontier' and had no notion of the outside world until the seventies. They have extensive cultural features . The women show their beauty and status by piercing their lips and ears and wearing large plates in them. The men demonstrate their strength and courage in stick fighting ceremonies. Even though the look so different from us they showed us similarities to our culture _ love of family and love of traditions . They were as curious of us as we were of them and yet warm and receptive.
