A Himba tribeswoman fixes her hair outside her home in the small village of Okapembambu in northwestern Namibia, during the rainy season in March. The Himba diet consists of corn meal porridge and sour cow's milk. Like most traditional Himba women, she covers herself from head to toe with an ochre powder, cow butter blend.
