    Default Oldest photographs of Somalis

    These photographs were taken by Roland Bonaparte over 100 years ago, interestingly it shows Somalis presenting themselves differently than they do today, they resemble the indigenous Afar nomads of ethiopia in their hair and dress. The object worn around the neck is called 'Qardhasso' , it has a inscription of the Qur'an and nomads wear it for protection to ward off the evil eye and negative spirits.

    The names of the clans and age were also mentioned,

    'Igge Karbaashe, Isaaq, Habar Awal, Sa'ad Muuse, 21 yrs.



    Hamdule 'Abdi, Midgaan, Toumaal (Blacksmith), 20 yrs. The Midgaan are a gypsy clan among the Somalis, sadly up until this day the major Somali clans (Isaaq, Darood, Hawiye) have a policy that they do not marry from the Tumaal, Midgaan. In fact the members of the Isaaq clan used to pay a Midgaan money when a boy was born, because they believed if they did not then the Midgaan would curse them.



    Tariq Ahmed, Midgaan (Shoe-maker), Madhibaan, 40 yrs.



    Ahmed Amar, Isaaq, Habar Awal, 'Isa Muuse, 25 yrs.



    Bakri Ob'hali, Isaaq ,Habar Awal, 'Isa Musee, 28 yrs.



    Tariq Aden, 20 yrs, Isaaq, Habar Yonis, 'Abdallah Isaaq.



    Ali Gaboose, Isaaq, Habar Awal, Sa'ad Muuse, 20 yrs.



    Warsame Yonis, 24 yrs, Isaaq, Habar Awal, Sa'ad Muuse.





    Taraad Muuse, Midgaan (Shoe-maker) Madhibaan, 20 yrs.



    Hassan Muhammed, 21 yrs, Isaaq, Habar Awal, Sa'ad Muuse.



    Muhammed 'Hirsi, Isaaq, Habar Yoonis, 'Abdallah Isaaq, 18 yrs.



    Cigaal Mohammed, Midgaan, Toumal (Blacksmiths), 20 yrs.



    Ibrahim Tariq, Isaaq, Habar Yoonis, Reer 'Hamoud, 23 yrs.



    Du'aale Abdi, Isaaq, Tol-Je'lo, Mousse Abu-bokor, 28 yrs.



    Ahmed 'Hirsi, Isaaq, Habar Yoonis, 'Abdallah Isaaq, 13 yrs.



    Neriib Muhammed, 'Isa clan of Djibouti, 22 yrs.



    Hassan Yusuf, 20 yrs, Habar Awal, Sa'ad Muuse. Strangely enough, looks like a female, I wonder if the photographer got the names wrong?



    Okay thats the end of the Photographs from Rolande Bonaparte, here are some other very old photographs.
