Mucubal Hat

The Mucubal women are known for fashioning beautiful hats from brightly colored fabrics supported by sticks to make their unique shape. This is a nomadic tribe in Southern Angola that live in desert areas with small herds of goats and cattle. They coexist with the local wildlife and subsist on maize and goat milk, and occasionally goat meat.
