The Toposa tribe which hails from South Sudan is an Agro-pastoralist community. Despite their love for rearing cattle, they also grow sorghum. They get their food from their cattle and sorghum which is often stored in wooden granaries build by women only.
The Nilotic community abhors circumcision, unlike many African communities that embrace circumcision as a rite of passage. They, however, appreciate scarification which is in form of beautiful patterns on their arms, faces, and backs. Scarification is a sign of beauty and also a sign of adulthood.
