Vezo setting net from Pirogue
Vezo (Fishing people) fishermen setting fishing net from his Pirogue or outrigger canoe. These narrow wooden canoes with their one stabalizer are remarkably sea worthy. The small rectangular sails are made from cotton. Vezo are also known as Vezo-Sakalava as they are not generally recognised as a separate tribe but a clan of the Sakalava. They live on the coast in the region of Morondava in the west to Faux Cap in the south. They are mainly fishermen. They are also known for their tombs, which are graves dug into the ground surrounded by wooden palisages, the main posts of which are crowned by erotic wooden carved figures.
