Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This ethnographic survey describes the Mao and neighboring peoples of southwestern Ethiopia. Coverage ranges from aspects of traditional culture and history to the effects of increased contact with neighboring ethnic groups—including the politically centralized Kafa with whom the southern Mao claim historical affinity, and the demographically dominant Oromo peoples who entered the area beginning in the sixteenth century. Increased incorporation into the Ethiopian state also affected Mao culture and society.
