Suri Chief Dream Orphans wLettersPP.jpg

Chief Bolagedung's dream #1

When I visited the Suri tribe in Ethiopia, Chief Bolagedung was one of the two major chiefs of the large Suri (Surma) tribe. The chief told me that one night his deceased father came to him in a dream. The chief said: "My father told me to protect the tribe orphans.

"I followed my father's advice."

Suri Tribe, Omo region, Ethiopia, Africa

 

Notes from my Africa Journal

As is often the case, I did several versions of this myth image. This might have been the first one.
