Tribes of Ethiopia

  • تم نشره في 2019/04/ 9
  • Globalisation and development are impacting heavily on the tribes living in the Omo Valley. Human rights groups fear for their future if they are forced to scatter, give up traditional ways of living through loss of land or the ability to keep cattle.
    The Lower Omo Valley is a spectacularly beautiful area with diverse ecosystems including grasslands, volcanic outcrops, and one of the few remaining ‘pristine’ riverine forests in semi-arid Africa which supports a wide variety of wildlife.
    The annual flooding of the Omo River feeds the rich biodiversity of the region and guarantees the food security of the tribes especially as rainfall is low and erratic.
    They depend on it to practice ‘flood retreat cultivation’ using the rich silt left along the river banks by the slowly receding waters.
    They also practice rainfed, shifting cultivation growing sorghum, maize and beans on the flood plains. Some tribes, particularly the Kwegu, hunt game and fish.
    Cattle, goats and sheep are vital to most tribes’ livelihood producing blood, milk, meat and hides. Cattle are highly valued and used in payment for bride wealth.

    People from the Omo Valley are the indigenous inhabitants of what was called Ethiopia.
    The other tribes were indigenous to the Middle East I guess and later came to the Horn.
    They are the real Hamites and their remnats are also found in Uganda,Eastern Congo, Kenya,Tanzania

      Those other tribes are descendants of the natives, too. They just bred with Middle Eastern people at some point

    _"Average life expectancy in ethiopia is 45 years"_ in which ethiopia? Where do you get your information? *The average life expectancy in Ethiopia is 63 years for men and 65 years for woman.*

    Ethiopia is an underrated titan in African history. Ethiopians had to constantly defend their sovereignty from European imperialistic claws, from the British and then the Italians. For whom, the inspired forces of Menelik II dismantled in the now famed, battle of Adwa.
    Ethiopia embraced Christianity about the same time as it was beginning to spread in the Roman Empire. Ethiopia already had Christianity centuries before even the British and other modern European nations embraced it.
    Before, the overthrow of Emperor Haile Selassie by the Derg in the late 1970s, Ethiopia could boast of having one of the longest surviving monarchies, as the Solomonic line of succession in Ethiopia originated from a union between the King of Sheba and King Solomon all the way back in Biblical times.
    *Menelik II,* who was _Emperor of Ethiopia_ from 1889 to 1913, expanded the Empire of Ethiopia to its present-day reaches, and brought dozens of different ethnicities together under one state. He founded the capital city, Addis Ababa, and created the foundation of Ethiopia as it is today!
    The diversity of Ethiopia is astoundingly beautiful: Ethiopia is diverse not just in religion and ethnicities, but also in language. According to the Linguistic Diversity Index, Ethiopia is the 21st most linguistically diverse country worldwide.
    The Afro-Asiatic languages are the most spoken in Ethiopia, distantly related to Arabic and Hebrew. Semitic languages such as Amharic and Tigrinya are spoken. Also included within the Afro-Asiatic languages are the Cushitic languages like Oromo and Somali, along with the disputed Omotic grouping.
    There are even more language families. Nilo-Saharan languages such as Anuak and Nuer make up a large portion of languages in the southwest. Additionally, it is believed that there are some unstudied Bantu languages of the Niger-Congo family in southern Ethiopia. And a few language isolates exist.
    Thanks for reading!
