Photo by @randyolson | There are times when fetching water can kill you. The tribes in the Omo River valley fight over access to water and the food they can grow on its riverbanks. There are droughts where locals have to dig into riverbanks to get bits of muddy water. And recently there’s the additional threat of the Gibe III dam, which could completely choke the Omo. When the dam goes online and the river is diminished, these groups will not have the water and food they need. These are the last culturally diverse tribes in southern Ethiopia with attributes like lip-plates, bull jumping, and stick fighting. The fear is that when the Omo diminishes, Lake Turkana will dry up like the Aral Sea, which was one of the planet’s greatest environmental disasters. –
