The Dinka Tribe
Robes that Sudanese women wear. It is a tradition but also a reflection of social change. IN the Matti era of the 1800's covered most of the women's face, leaving only her eyes uncovered. The tops also consisted of drab staid colors. THE TOPS cONTINued to be like this until 1950 when the women marched for freedom against british colonialism for equal pay and the right to vote. (They won all of these battles). after the women's march the top came off from the face, and became very colorful. Although women are starting to abandon the tradition of top, for more modern clothing, and is now used only ceremonially.
TRADITIONAL FOOD THAT THE DINKA TRIBE EAT ARE cow milk, fish, meat, beans, Tomatoes, and rice.
The scar marks are made on the forehead of a man or woman so she, or he, can be identified as apart of the Dinka tribe
Red is symbolic for the struggle of freedom, white signifies peace, black is meant to be the people of Sudan, and green is the color of islam, agriculture, and prosperity.

In 1985, the government in north Sudan decided that everyone apart of Sudan should be a muslim, follow the rules of a muslim, and worship the god of the muslim religion. But south Sudan wished to keep their religion resulting in a war. Dinka tribesmen had to flee their homes and travel far distances east. Their journey, for seeking peace, was harrowing. Many had to cross the crocodile infested Gilo River, and trudge through arid deserts.
The Dinka's homes are very small and are made out of natural resources around them. The houses are tiny because the dinka's main income is cattle and cattle graze. So, the houses are only temporary because the home owners must follow their cattle's grazing patterns. there is no sense of having a glorious house if you have to leave it frequently.
