This tribe is called the himba, they reside mainly in Namibia, but i understand there is a population in Angola. However they are a nomadic group similar to the san, yet they decorate themselves(mainly women) some sought of red or clay paint, and wear elaborate hair styles.

The Nama tribe is a Khoisan or Khoi ethnic group, and is considered the original settlers or people in Southern Africa, before the so called bantu expansion, and later European groups they are related to the San, however unlike the San who nomadic, the khoi were farmers.
Like the himba above most of the Nama tribe lives in the modern nation states of namibia, however you can find these tribe in Botswana and South Africa as well. Since there genetic signature is supposely diverse, some evolutionist believe that the San were the original humans, Needless to say, I don't subscribe to evolution, therefore i will keep my opinion to myself, and be objective here.

These people don't need a introduction. Their ethnicity is famous around and was feared by Europeans and other Africans groups alike. In Fact the current President of the Republic of South Africa is of these people Heritage.

Far from American LOL. I wasn't talking about them living the way they are in nudity if we're talking about that. I just find it funny how it is absolutely never a concern at all to parade them in the mass media in nude without ever censor anything, but when under all others, sexual or not, they would definitely try to do so. It's Like what , "since none of that is appealing at all it's not going to do any harm. Let's just show that dude's johnson or those boobs swigging around in everyone's faces in national TV."

If you're not into 'that tribal stuff', you might want to rethink your avatar.
 
I don't agree with your idea of censoring these photos or the beautiful bodies of these people in their natural, comfortable environment.
 
I do however agree with what you think the reasoning is for not censoring them in Western medoa.

Now, I will focus in a mysterious island off the African Continent called Madagascar. Interestly, It was unknown to me that Madagascar as well as Mozambique were exporting unforunate souls as slaves to the Americas, maybe the islamic world as well. In other words, few people or a small percentage in the americas may have ancestrial links to this area of the world as well. Here is the website:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~malagasy4us/histories.htm" rel="nofollow - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~malagasy4us/histories.htm
documentation above link
 
 
Here is a article i found over the net about Malagasy slaves in the United States.

From 1719 to 1725 more than 1,000 Malagasy slaves arrived to the Commonwealth of Virginia through the ports of Rappahannock and York rivers. The Prince Eugene of Bristol came into York River district of Virginia on May 18, 1719 carrying 340 Malagasy; the Mercury of London arrived at the district of Rappahannock River on May 17, 1720 with 466 Malagasy; and were followed by the Rebecca Snow, the Gascoigne Galley, the Henrietta, and the Coker Snow. The Prince Eugene, Rebecca Snow, and Gascoigne Galley apparently made directly from Madagascar for Virginia, where the Prince Eugene had sold her licensed cargo in 1719. The Henrietta stopped in Pernambuco, Brazil before continuing to Barbados and Virginia. Three of the Madagascar vessels arrived in Virginia over a period of only six weeks, entering at York River as follows: The Gascoigne Galley with 133 slaves, on May 15, 1721; the Prince Eugene (on a second trip) with 103 slaves in June, and the Henrietta with 130 slaves later that month. Platt states that the total number of Malagasy brought into Virginia between 1719 and 1721, comes to 1, 231 when the 340 slaves brought on the Prince Eugene's previous voyage and the 466 brought by the Mercury in 1720 are counted in. (Platt: 1969:567
 
 
 
There is alot of unknowns about the history of Madagascar, and what we have here is base on theories and conjectures, yet it is believe that the island was settled by migrants from indonesia during the 5 century Ad, followed by bantu speakers from south east africa. Nevertheless, you have about 18 tribal groups, and other racial minorities as well. Since this is unchartered terroritory for me, i am not going to name the tribe, but only post pictures of the indigeous inhabitants of Madagascar.

Miss Namibia 2010
 
 
She is Namibian, but could not find her ethnic background, however from first appearance she looks most likely of Khoisan ancestry or Nama blood. However namibia do have a small percent of Germans, and mixed raced people known locally as Basters. Don't ask me why they name themselves that but it what it is, however basters and europeans only represents according to last figures 5 or 6 percent of the entire country. Most likely i think she is Khoi blood.

As a construction project, it required more earth to be moved than the Great Pyramid of Giza. More than 100 miles (160 kilometers) in circumference with some sections having walls which reach 70 feet (20 meters) in height, it encloses an area 25 miles (40 km) north to south and 22 miles (35 km) east to west. The Eredo served a defensive purpose when it was built in 1000 C.E., a period of political confrontation and consolidation in the southern Nigerian rain forest.

It owes its name to the  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%A9n%C3%A9gal_River" rel="nofollow - Sénégal River  that borders it to the east and north. Senegal is externally bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the west,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauritania" rel="nofollow - Mauritania  to the north,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mali" rel="nofollow - Mali  to the east, and  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinea" rel="nofollow - Guinea  and  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinea-Bissau" rel="nofollow - Guinea-Bissau  to the south; internally it almost completely surrounds  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gambia" rel="nofollow - The Gambia , namely on the north, east and south, except for Gambia's short Atlantic coastline. Senegal covers a land area of almost 197,000 square kilometres (76,000 sq mi), and has an estimated population of about 13 million. The climate is tropical with two seasons: the dry season and the rainy season.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakar" rel="nofollow - Dakar , the capital city of Senegal, is located at the westernmost tip of the country on the  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cap-Vert_peninsula" rel="nofollow - Cap-Vert peninsula . About 500 kilometres (300 mi) off the coast lie the  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Verde_Islands" rel="nofollow - Cape Verde Islands . During the 17th and 18th centuries, numerous trading posts, belonging to various colonial empires, were established along the coast. The town of St. Louis became the capital of  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_West_Africa" rel="nofollow - French West Africa  (Afrique occidentale française, or AOF) before it was moved to Dakar in 1902. Dakar became its capital in 1960 at the time of independence from  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France" rel="nofollow - France .
