The Himba
> zurück zur Übersicht
The Himba are semi-nomadic herdsmen who live im Kakaoland in the north of Namibia. Their forfathers, Herero-speaking shepherds, wandered from the Angolan province of Mocamedes, where related groups still live, probably around the mid-16th century. About 1750, most of the Hereos gravitated towards the center of Namibia. The Himba emerged mainly from the groups which remained in the north. Today, Himba and Herero live together in harmony.
