"Faultline: The Nuba in Sudan"

10 of 40

Moro Hills, Nuba Mountains, Sudan. November 2005. Nadia, 30 years old, Tocha tribe. Outside her home. Scarification is dying out among the Nuba. The Tacha scar their members as they approach maturity, to mark the change from one generation to the other. Girls begin with the fiist set of body scarification at the age of nine or ten. These are closely relted to physiological changes. A second set takes place after menstruation starts. Rocks are used for scarring, making the risk of infection high.
