Today, we will Attend Donga stick fighting. Men take part in a stick fighting, a combination of martial art, ritual, and sport, named Donga and has traditionally been a way men impress women and find a wife. They fight with little or no clothing, and violent clashes sometimes result in death. Battles usually take place between Suri villages, which can consist of between 40 and 2,500 people. As well as providing an opportunity to attract a partner, the fights aim to get young men used to bloodshed – which leaders believe comes in handy if they clash with other tribes.
