These are indigenous people from South Sudan. The Dinka are a pastoral-agricultural tribe that make up the largest ethnic group in South Sudan. The Dinka defended their area against the ottoman Turks in the mid 1800s and repulsed attemps of slave merchants to convert them to Islam. Otherwise they live in seclusion. The Dinka bowl is embedded with brass and copper.
