They inhabit the territory east of the Omo River and have villages in Turmi and Dimeka. They are a semi-nomadic, pastoral people, numbering about 42 000.

Honey collection is their major activity and their cattle is the meaning of their life.
They will stay for a few months wherever there is enough grass for grazing, putting up their round huts. When the grass is finished, they will move on to new pasture grounds.
This is the way they have been living for generations.
The land isn’t owned by individuals; it’s free for cultivation and grazing, just as fruit and berries are free for whoever collects them.
The Hammer move on when the land is exhausted or overwhelmed by weeds.
