The Wodaabe tribe is a Fulani tribe in Niger, West Africa. The males in the tribe are regarded as very vain because they believe that they are the most handsome set of men and they always carry mirrors. In the tribe, marriage is always contracted in infancy, and the women can have as many sexual partners as they desire before marriage. The tribe holds an annual festival called the Gerewol during which men dress elaborately, wear make-up and hold a beauty pageant of some sort. During the festival, men dress to impress the wives of other men. The Wodaabe Wife Stealing Festival So.....in order to steal the wives they dress like women? That is a bit odd.
