    Aawambo boys

    Many traditional practices of Namibians have been eroded by Westernisation and Christianity. However a some still kept their customs such as dress code mainly displayed on special occasions. After independence there has been a growth in the rediscovery and 're'-appreciation of traditional identities that were largely repressed through negative self-image brought about through colonialism and Apartheid. The picture shows boys belonging to the Aawambo ethnic group, the largest in the country.
