Dinka Tribe
The Dinka tribe is located in Southern Sudan, which is a country in the continent of Africa
Cultural facts
Dinka literature remains orally expressed in songs, poems, and folklore
The most important asset to the Dinka culture is the cattle camp where all social activities are cultivated
Scarification is the permanent process of decorating the body. To do this, people cut into the body to raise scars. The Dinka tribe scarification is ten or more lines across the forehead, depending on the size of it.
In 1895, the government of Northern Sudan decided that everyone should be their religion. When Southern Sudan wanted to keep their religion a war broke out. The Dinka tribesman had to flee their houses and walk a long way east
Tops are clothing that sudanese woman wear for ceremonies. They are long and flowy dresses, and the woman can describe personality with how they choose to decorate them.
Traditional Foods
Some of the traditional foods for the Dinka tribe are cow, milk, fish, beans, rice, and tomatoes
Another conflict in Sudan is between the Nuer and the Dinka tribe. In the book A Long Walk To Water, by Linda Sue Park, it explains how the Dinka and the Nuer had been in conflict for hundreds of years. This was explained in about the year 2010 in the book, so they must have been in colflict for a very long time. There was no specific place for where the Dinka land ended, and the Nuer land began, so the two tribes would fight over land.
The Dinka do not have any real holidays because of war. Instead they all gather together and kill their favorite cow in appreciation. This is called Autumn Gathering
Traditional Homes
The Dinka only builds temporary houses. During the wet-season, the houses have circular mud walls over stick frames with thatched roofs. In the dry season, men move their cattle and families near rivers and pond, but in the wet season, they have to move away to higher land to stay away from the flooding.
There are three even stripes with a green isosceles triangle on the side. The red stripe on the flag signifies the struggle for freedom. The white represents peace, light, and love. The black represents the people of Sudan. FInally the green represents the color of Islam, agriculture, and prosperity
