The Dinka Tribe: Man of the Men

This program profiles the warriors of the White Nile, a tribe that others call Dinka but that calls itself Moinjang: Man of the Men. Wedding negotiations, which involve a bride price usually paid in cattle, are highlighted, along with a traditional high-stakes contest to be the fattest man in the land. The impacts of Sudan’s civil war and of a thriving slave trade, intensified by famine and extreme poverty, are also discussed. Can the Dinka devotion to their supreme being, Nialith, and to the many ancestral spirits they honor keep their culture alive? (53 minutes)
