Description

Mingi (ሚንጊ) - Amazing Short Film | Mingi is the traditional belief among the Omotic-speaking Karo and Hamar tribes in southern Ethiopia that adults and children with physical abnormalities are ritually impure.

They are believed to exert an evil influence upon others, so disabled infants have traditionally been disposed of without a proper burial.

The Karo officially banned the practice in July 2012, while around 50,000 individuals secretly continue to practice it in other Omotic communities.
