THIS IS HOW WE LOST OUR CULTURE…Converts to Christianity marked their adherence to a new religion by changing the way they dressed. They adopted westernized clothes that signaled them as Christians, as did this Catholic woman in Dakar, Senegal.1935They laughed at your clothes; and made you change your clothes, they laughed at your names; and made you change your names; but most importantly they laughed at your God; and made you change your God.” - John Henrik Clarke

Somali Nomads (in white) at a Market in 1969 in Xuddur (Hudur) Region, Somalia. How do they get their hair like that. Its crazy. So much style. Plus if you look at the patterns the guys are wearing the one in green and white( 3rd from left and 5th from left as well), LV used it recently for their Spring 2012.
