 The Wodaabe are a nomadic, cattle-herding subgroup of the Fulani ethnic group which are spread across most of western Africa. They are known for their sexual liberation, unwed girls may have sex whenever and with whomever they wish.

 Their marriage rituals are world famous, in which the young Wodaabe men put on elaborate make-up and other adornments and carry out the Yaake, which are dances and songs they perform to impress the onlooking ladies.
