‘The project glorifies the varying and unique cultural creativity with their painted faces, scarified bodies, jewellery, extravagant hairstyles and ritual language’ #Wodaabe #Chad

Suku Wodaabe adalah suku yang selalu berpindah tempat tinggal atau nomaden. Suku ini kerap melakukan perjalanan dari pesisir timur ke pesisir barat Afrika. Mereka melintasi cukup banyak negara seperti Niger, Kamerun, Republik Afrika Tengah, Chad, dan Nigeria. Sepanjang tahun, mereka akan berpindah dari satu tempat ke tempat lain untuk mendapatkan lahan yang nyaman.

Di masa modern pasti sering kita temukan kompetisi wanita tercantik, suku Wodaabe juga melakukan kompetisi yang sama. Perbedaannya adalah kontes kecantikan ini dilakukan oleh para pria yang memiliki wajah tampan dan cantik. Syarat mengikuti kontes ini adalah pria yang dianggap sudah dewasa. Tidak perduli apakah sudah menikah atau tidak. Siapa saja yang memenangkan kompetisi ini memiliki hak untuk memilih wanita yang diinginkan meski wanita itu istri dari orang lain. Suami yang ditinggalkan tidak bisa apa-apa karena kalah dalam even adu ketampanan atau tidak ikut sama sekali.

Sejak kecil suku Wodaabe telah dinikahkan secara tradisi, pernikahan pertama yang mereka alami harus diantara sepupu yang seumur. Pada saat beranjak dewasa, barulah mereka mencari wanita lain yang akan dijadikan pendamping hidup sebenarnya. Wanita lain yang dimaksud adalah wanita yang telah menikah menurut tradisi, karena itulah festival ini disebut festival mencuri istri. Dalam Festival mencuri istri ini, para pemuda Wodaabe akan berdandan setampan mungkin dan akan menari dan bernyanyi untuk bisa menarik perhatian perempuan muda sehingga bisa mengajaknya menikah.

Siapa saja yang memenangkan acara tradisi ini memiliki hak untuk memilih wanita yang diinginkan. Meski wanita itu istri dari orang lain, dia berhak mengambilnya dan dianggap wajar. Suami yang ditinggalkan tidak bisa apa-apa karena kalah dalam even adu ketampanan atau tidak ikut sama sekali.

Oh ya, selain pria diperbolehkan mencuri istri orang lain. Pihak wanita juga boleh mencuri suami orang lain. Wanita yang dianggap paling cantik boleh meminta siapa saja jadi suaminya. Seorang wanita di suku ini bisa memiliki lebih dari satu suami kalau dia memang suka. [african-union.org]

'The beauty standards and criteria aren’t all that different from your typical beauty pageant, except in the #nomadic #Wodaabe tribe of #Niger, it’s the girls who get to judge the boys.
The ladies are looking for the most beautiful face, the tallest and most graceful, the best dressed, flashing the brightest eyes and the biggest, whitest smile in the line up. 
The Wodaabe tribe are said to value three things in life the most: beauty, cattle and family.' #inspiration

From Wikipedia:
At the end of the rainy season in September, Wodaabe clans gather in several traditional locations before the beginning of their dry season transhumance migration. The best known of these is In-Gall's Cure Salée salt market and Tuareg seasonal festival. Here the young Wodaabe men, with elaborate make-up, feathers and other adornments, perform the Yaake: dances and songs to impress marriageable women. The male beauty ideal of the Wodaabe stresses tallness, white eyes and teeth; the men will often roll their eyes and show their teeth to emphasize these characteristics. Wodaabe clans then join for the remainder of the week-long Gerewol: a series of barters over marriage and contests where the young men's beauty and skills are judged by young women.

Said the Sun of Fire

O' Soothsayer
Singer of these sacred songs
That lilt like the birds
Flitting in a pomegrante tree
It is time for the flames
Of your wings to raise the air
To turn it into molten jelly, ecstasy
Concordence of light and sound
The sex of particle and wave
Inseperate in intimate
Gnosis, the tasting of our taste

O' Simurgh
Waving those potent pinions
In Moon's great hoop
Held aloft by the heavenly Twins
It is time for the future to be spoken
In the breathlessness of fingers
Finding the flowing fountain of youth
Wet with vibrations of Love itself
Heaven holding Earth
As Paradise leaps from our eyes
In the endless knot of this embrace

Tobo, a Bodaado (Wodaabe) little girl. On the left, she is in the family grazing area at north of Abalak (Niger, not far from Agadez), in 2012. At that time she was a protagonist of "Lokkol". On the right she is at Niamey, 20 days ago. She is always a smart, lively and talkative girl. The elders say that she forgets the pulaaku, the traditional code that requires modesty and reserve, but everybody, elders included, love her. #lokkol #wodaabe #niger #indiefilm #smartgirl #livelygirl #volcanogirl

Àlkada, Fatima, Tobo and Hatu in their hotel room at Niamey. They were happy. Last year, their schoolmates and protagonists of "Lokkol 2" were hosted by a herders' association and they had to sleep in an office... This time it was much better and they enjoyed the three days permanence joking, laughing, singing loudly... Well, it is a hotel owned by a Tuareg. He understands the little nomad herders and he can tolerate it... #Wodaabe #Niger #Niamey #classygirls #smartgirls happygirls #school #education #lokkol2 #indiefilm

Àlkada was in "Lokkol" and in "Lokkol 2", so, it's the second time that she visits Niamey. She's thinner than the other girls there. She lost her mother few weeks ago (see a previous post) and she eats very little. The elders of the village are worried about it and they decided to include her among the four girls going to Niamey, to take her mind off. Her hairstyle is not the normal one, but the special hairstyle for the mourning, reserved for all the close female relatives. Also Tobo, her younger aunt, wears it. It will last three months. Here, she is in the French cultural centre, listening the library's lady who is telling a story from a book. #Wodaabe #Niger #Niamey #nomadicherders #mourning #tradition #sensitivegirl #hairstyle #lokkol #lokkol2 #indiefilm

We're obsessed with the Wodaabe of the south Sahara, Africa. In a courtship ritual each year, before the dry season and the beginning of their cattle migration, the young men paint their face and don their finest to woo the marriageable women of the tribe, who judge from afar.

One of the best-known of these festivals is the Cure Salée salt market in In-Gall, Niger. Young Wodaabe men apply elaborate make-up, feathers, and other adornments before performing the Yaake song and dance, whereupon they attempt to impress the women with tallness, white eyes, and white teeth — the male beauty ideals of the Wodaabe.

Hatu is teaching Tobo to film at the National Museum of Niamey. Hatu was a protagonist of "Lokkol 2", while Tobo was in "Lokkol". At that time, in 2012, she was just a child. #Wodaabe #Niger #Niamey #education #nomadicschool #indiefilm #filmmaker #smartgirls

Tobo is the youngest among the 4 Wodaabe girls visiting Niamey. She is watching a film on a tablet at the Jean Rouch cultural centre. She is a girl leader since she was very little and she can speak and explain her reasons even with the elders. This is not in line with the pulaaku, the traditional code, but all people in Banganà, her village, love her. She was one of the protagonists of "Lokkol" in 2012. #Wodaabe #Niamey #Niger #leadergirl #stronggirl #indiefilm #nomadicschool #education

With my locks like this I kinda "feel" like a Massai or Wodaabe. I know of the style & technical differences, & of course the cultural. I don't mean to trigger troll anyone. 😅✊🏾

Alwasi, one of the protagonists of "Lokkol", is at Niamey, waiting for the minibus that will take her, her son Ja'o, her mother and other women of Bangana, to Ouagadougou (Burkina). It is the "exode", the periodical migration the Wodaabe mothers do to sell traditional remedies in order to get some income for their family. Alwasi will stay there for two months. #trip #Wodaabe #Niger #exode #migration #womenwork #youngmother #hardlife #strongwomen

LAST TWO DAYS OF THE EXHIBITION! It closes on Sunday 5 Nov at 5pm, so make sure you get there this weekend if you're in London (see previous posts for more information). At @madeingreenwich gallery; opposite Cutty Sark tube station. I'm showing my portraits of the Touareg and Peul people of Niger and Mali; my talented friend Brian Francis is showing his new series of drawings influenced by the Kushite culture of ancient Sudan.
This is one of the images on sale in the exhibition - taken at the Cure Salée festival in Niger in September this year.

This is the Gerewol, a traditional courtship ritual in Niger where men of the Wodaabe tribe decorate themselves with face paint and other accessories then dance and sing to impress the women. Tallness, wide eyes, white teeth and a good dancer is what Wodaabe women find desirable. VIDEO by: Chiyoco Tailovene
