Suri girl - Suri culture

At a certain age, the girls have their lower incisors taken out and their lip cut & stretched to hold a clay disc. The size of the disc equates to the woman’s value when they are to be married. The bigger the plate, the more cows they are worth! They were interesting to photograph and of all the tribes, I found them the most gentle.
