The Karo and Mursi tribes
Lower Omo Valley, South Ethiopia
The Lower Omo River in south west Ethiopia is home to eight different tribes whose population is about 200,000. They have lived there for centuries. However, the future of these tribes lies in the balance. A massive hydro-electric dam, Gibe III, is under construction on the Omo and when completed it will destroy a fragile environment and the livelihoods of the tribes, which are closely linked to the river and its annual flood.
