the dassanech are desert dwellers. they exist in the barren wasteland that straddles the border between ethiopia and kenya.

closely related to the famous turkana people, they live basic semi-nomadic lives in a tough environment.

the bottle-top headdress is the fashion accessory, which has made the dassanech a photographer’s dream.

the tribe trades goods for bottle-tops to make the ‘crown’.

the tribe is also renowned for hunting crocodiles in lake turkana and the omo river.
