"Upon killing a German soldier, a Herero warrior would remove the uniform and adopt it to his personal dress as a symbol of his prowess in battle. Paradoxically, as with the Victorian dresses, the wearing of German uniforms became a tradition that is continued to this day by Namibian men who honour their warrior ancestors during ceremonies, festivals and funerals."

"In the European scramble to colonise Africa, Kaiser Wilhelm’s Germany claimed one of the least populated and most hostile environments on the planet. Rhenish missionaries set about converting and clothing after European fashion. Over time, this became a Herero tradition. Gradually, regional variations in the silhouette emerged; for example, the addition of 'cow horns' to headdresses reflects the great importance with which they regard their cattle."

Step back into the past and enjoy these portraits of Herero tribe members of Namibia. The pictures show residents wearing Victorian era dresses and paramilitary costume as a direct result.

Jim Naughten's amazing photographs of the Herero: "Each image", he explains, is "reveals a material culture that harkens the region’s tumultuous past: residents wear Victorian era dresses and paramilitary costume as a direct result and documentation of its early 20th century German colonization."
