The Karo live in the Southern Omo Zone or Omo Valley, in a few small villages near the Mago river. Their name is also spelled as Kara. This dying race of half-nomads numbers only about 500. They share many traditions with their Hamar neighbors, including the economic system, social system, religious values, and the highly sophisticated hair-cuts. The only real difference is the fact that they regard themselves as a separate people. The karo are considered masters of body painting, especially when a dance or celebration is coming up. Everyone paints their body...men, women and children. They use white chalk, yellow mineral rock, and black charcoal and pulverized red iron ore. The men also have some wild hairstyles and ornaments.
