These people are known as BODI TRIBE. They're located in southwestern Ethiopia where their culture is mainly centered on cattle rearing.

The Bodi people are neighbours to the Mursi Tribe. The Bodi people are agriculturalists who still engage in trade by barter system. These pastoral people revere their cows. Their cows are so special to them that their blood together with fresh milk are sources of food for these people, drinking fresh cow milk missed with its blood makes their stomach big.

In this tribe, Men with the biggest bellies are considered sexy and handsome. They do annual festival where they compete about who has the biggest belly. The winner at the end of the day is allowed to marry any woman of his choice and becomes the community hero.
