Herero Traditional Clothes

I just saw this article about an ongoing exhibit in the US about Herero traditional clothes! I posted about these clothes a long time ago [August 2011, wow I've been in Nam a long time] back when I was in training and had the chance to go to Hero's Day festivities, celebrated by Hereros who traveled from all over the country to attend. There really aren’t any Hereros at all in Luderitz, however, the town where we trained had lots of Hereros and the women really do wear these dresses every day! These are striking photographs, I wish I could see the full exhibit!
