South Sudan was formed by a long-awaited independence referendum on July 9, 2011, and took its first steps on a wave of hope and promise. Two years later, civil war is tearing the country apart. Seven million people — nearly 60 percent of South Sudan’s population — teeter on the edge of a hunger crisis.
In the world’s youngest country where an ongoing civil war is taking place between Dinka and Nuer ethnic groups, traditions are the same as millennia ago: cattle remains the center of the country’s culture and economy. The Dinka regard cattle as sacred. They live in symbiosis with their cows, sleeping outdoors in the same camp with them and using the cow’s milk, blood, skin, and waste as vital resources for survival.
