Where do the Suri tribe live?
The explorer Bruce Parry travels to south-western Ethiopia to meet the Suri tribe. The Suri live to the west of the Omo River and are renowned cattle herders and traders. Competition for land in this part of the world, however, is fierce and inter-tribal conflict is still a regular occurrence. This clip was first published as part of the BBC Tribe website: bbc.co.uk/tribe/index.shtml. Please note this clip is only available in Flash.
Useful in the context of a unit on cultural understanding and diversity or a study of people and their environment. Ask your learners to study the video and to produce a list of adjectives to describe the landscape of this part of Ethiopia. Ask them to draw comparisons with the landscape of their home region.
