A Himba chief stands with his two wives outside his home in the small village of Okapembambu in northwestern Namibia, during the rainy season in March. The Himba culture is polygamous. The Himba diet consists of corn meal porridge and sour cow's milk. Like most traditional Himba women, they covers themselves from head to toe with an ochre powder, cow butter blend.
