Fashionable indigenous Angolan tribeswomen| CCTV English

Incredible images capture a group of Angolan tribeswomen who display their age through hundreds of brightly colored necklaces. The more necklaces they have, the more life they have lived. The colors represent different stages of their lives. The jewelry is made using wicker, mud and hundreds of beads. The practice is known as vilanda. The women also plait their hair, coating it with a mixture
of oil, crushed tree bark, dried cow dung and herbs. The way the women dress helps to keep their tribal traditions alive.
