For those tribes, it means nothing, it just means free clothes! Mucubal (also called Mucubai, Mucabale, Mugubale) people are a subgroup of the Herero ethnic group, which means they are bantu speaking, and are supposed to have come from Kenya and to be related with Massais.” Click the link to read the rest of the photographer’s description.
