A Nuer man in a cattle camp on the banks of the Baro River. The parallel scars on his forehead are a sign of his manhood. Every cattle breeding ethnic group in the region has different scar patterns. The Nuer are traditionally cattle breeders and migrate between their villages where they live during summer to temporary cattle camps in winter. They are a minority in Western Ethiopia, but one of the major ethnic groups in the Southern Sudan.
