Ethiopia travel program at North Valley Public Library

Wed, Oct 23 2013, 6:30 pm MDT

Interested in Africa? Join Elaine Davis Wednesday October 23rd at the North Valley Public Library for her program covering the various religions and peoples of Ethiopia. Ethiopia is where both the first evidence of early man was found (Lucy), and where earliest man-made tools were found. She will start with the capital, Addis Ababa where Ethiopian Christian Orthodox is the predominant religion and then her trip takes her to South Omo where some of the most remote tribal peoples live. These animist people have been living the same life for thousands of years. This life may soon change with the damming of the Omo River. Elaine’s talk will include cultural traditions of several tribes and her up-close photos will provide a look at the unique way these people value art. The one hour program will begin at 6:30 pm in the Community Room of the library. Admission is free and all ages are welcome. The North Valley Public Library is located at 208 Main Street, Stevensville. For more information, call 777-5061.
