The Nama are a Namibian population identifiable by their language that is characterized by clicks-like sounds.
 
The Nama practice various ceremonies and rituals, among which deserves to be mentioned the elaborate ritual of the wedding, that can last for months.
 
The Nama traditionally founded their own economy on cattle breeding; their homes are very characteristic and have a typical dome shape and a series of beautifully woven panels.
