The Wodaabe Man is a nomadic herdsman, tradesman, and is apart of a people who has been able to resist modernization and colonization. His migration stretches from Niger and as far as Central African Republic. He is a sub-group of the Fulani peoples and his primary religion is Islam. Amongst his people, yearly celebrations and dances center on the theme of beauty. The Wodaabe Man spends a lot of time preparing himself physically and mentally for the yaake (charm competition) and geerewol dances. Both dances are used for courtship, and are judged by females who were also chosen by a general counsel for their beauty. The Wodaabe people are considered the pioneers of modern day beauty pageants.
