There are over 7 billion people on earth, and each person is completely different. There are all different types of people, groups, ethnicities, and in this case, tribes. These photos have captured the essence of the Dinka Tribe.
The Dinka are located in the Republic of Sudan. They are one of the largest ethnic groups in the country. They have an extensive history too. They are very spiritual people too. In 1983, a civil war erupted in Sudan. The war put the largely Arab and Muslim Northern Sudan against the black African people of the south – including the Dinka. In the 1990’s tens of thousands of Dinka died, and many others became refugees.
The Dinka live in a vast region in South Sudan. Their homes consist of swampland, but many of them have relocated due to the war. They have relocated to many different places such as Kenya, Uganda, the United States, and Europe. These photographs capture the true essence of the life of a Dinka. They were taken by Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher. They spent 30 years taking photos of ceremonies, rituals, and the daily life of the Dinka African Tribe. You can see the photos below.
