Antandroy herdsman wearing hat made from goat skin. These traditional hats are now rare to see. His shoes are hand-made from Zebu skin. The gourd is for storing water or milk and the top is closed off with a corn cob. These 'people of thorns' live in the 'spiny' forests of Southern MADAGASCAR. They are mainly Zebu (cattle) herders, their ancestors coming from mainland Africa.
