Indigenous Peoples

This gallery gives an overview of some of the pictures of African tribal peoples and rituals available on Africa Media Online. With African tribal rituals and customs are being lost to the global culture, our photographers are actively working on capturing these rituals and cultural traditions on camera.

Some of the tribal groups that we have images from include the Baka, the Karo, the Khoisan, the Maasai, the Mursi, the Himba, the Pygmy, the Hamer, the Ndebele, the Pygmy, the Samburu, the Swazi, the Tuareg, the Venda, the Xhosa and the Zulu. Please do specific keyword searches to find other African tribal images not in this selection.
