The Datooga Tribe Tour


I give guided tours to a Datooga Family where we observe their everyday life. The Datoogas, once fierce warriors, are now gentle people. You will be invited into a family home. The women may be using their grinding stone while singing songs. You can try on one of their leather dresses and learn about the significance of the undergarments for married women. You may observe the circular tatooing around the women's eyes, as decoration. You will be invited into the men's metalshop area where they use a fire and bellows for melting metals. Then they may pound out a piece of jewelry or arrow tip while you watch. You may be able to observe the family's traditional dances and songs. It is a great experience for the whole family.
