Arba Minch, Ethiopia - November 3, 2012: Bull jumping ceremony. Large group of women jumping in a circle and singing. Their hair and skin are freshly painted with red earth, some women's backs have fresh scars from the lashes, against blue sky, dirt and dust on ground.


Hamer are one of the most known tribes in Soutern Ethiopia.They live in the east of the Omo River and have villages in Turmi and Dimeka. Tourists visit the hamer hoping to see a traditional leaping ceremony (the jumping of bulls).The traditional bull jumping is a rite of passage for men coming of age (Maza).The man must jump over a line of 10 to 30 bulls four times completey nude without falling. It starts first with dancing of the village women. On their backs you can see fresh scars, because during this ceremony, the women of the tribe provoke the maza to whip them on their bare backs.
