Hamer  are one of the most known tribes in Southwestern Ethiopia.

They inhabit the territory east of the Omo River.

The Hamer have very unique rituals such as a bull-jumping ceremony.Bull Jumping ceremony represent a life changing event for the young man who passes from boyhood into adulthood. This rite of passage must be done before a man is permitted to marry.
