Mursi Tribe Girls With Lip Plates. by Davedavy: 9:26pm On Aug 01, 2009
The Mursi tribe are an African tribe in Southern Ethiopia near the border with Sudan. Very few Mursi people speak Amharic which is the Ethiopian official language and most are unable to read or write. Although a small percentage of the Mursi tribe are Christians, most still practice Animism, believing that plants, animals and some inanimate objects possess spirits. Mursi tribe girls and women wear lip plates in their lower lips. The Mursi girls pierce the bottom lips which are stretched so that a clay lip plate can be inserted. In addition, this African tribe removes the bottom teeth of the girls for esthetic enhancement. Similar to the Hamer tribe, the Mursi tribe commonly drink a mixture of blood and milk as do other African tribes in the region.

oh i know them. We talked about this tribe in my african civilzation/history class. it's claimed that the bigger the lip plate, the more attractive their men saw the women. And yeah, the plate thing comes off; in one of the picture my teacher showed us, one of the lady had hers off and her whole bottom lips was just hanging (it looked disgusting).
It's a weird culture if you ask me. Don't understand how they talked with that thing in their lip and why in the hell someone would go through those kind of torture.

This ethic group are considered the most aggressive ethnic group in the world. All men of this tribe have Kalashnikov’s automatons which are illegally transferred for them through the border. Besides they start to drink since the early morning, and become uncontrollable till the evening.The Mursi men practice light scarification on their shoulders after killing an enemy, and shave geometric patterns on their heads.
When a young Mursi girl reaches the age of 15 or 16, her lower lip is pierced so she can wear a lip plate. The larger the lip plate she can tolerate, the more cattle her bride price will bring for her father.

women who dont want lip plates will probably run away.

I hope they dont end up as prostitutes somewhere.

Sounds like a gun running tribe. Maybe they supply arms to other places.
