Women of the African Ark 2012 Wall Calendar
Product DescriptionThere are more than one thousand indigenous tribes in Africa, each with unique cultural attributes. Mostly herders, farmers, and hunter-gatherers, these tribal people face deep questions about their future as they are increasingly pressured by national governments to adopt a modern, urbanized life-style. Within this context, the status of tribal women also is changing. As a result of increased education, some women in tribes where strict male dominance has long been the rule are questioning their traditional roles. Women of the African Ark portrays Hamar, Maasai and other tribal women who are still living and adorning themselves in the traditional style. With impending change as a backdrop, the twelve images in this calendar take on a precious significance.
This calendar includes an insert listing major holidays for many countries worldwide. 12"L x 13"W folded
