Meet the Kambari people: One of the few naked tribes of Nigeria

The Kambari people are an ancient rural community in Niger state, one of the few who still practice nudity.
A reclusive people, the Kambari people pride themselves as being as independent from the government as possible.
Kambari is a remote community in Birnin Amina in Rijau Local Government Area in Niger state where people go about naked. They are a forgotten tribe satisfied with their simple way of life and their lack of governmental support for a sustainable community.

Way of life
The Kambari people do not speak English or Hausa, but speak their native Kambari. They stay in their small communities and only interact with others when they have to go to the farm and market. Nudity as a culture was passed down to them by their ancestors and is a part of them they aren't willing to let go of. However, when they people go to the market to sell their farm produce, the women cover the bottom half of their bodies with wrappers while the men do the same. Donkeys provide the only means of transport for a largely agrarian and nomadic people.

Marriage
In Kambari, marriage is celebrated by slaughtering goats and cows for food while the parents of the bride cook food for the groom. Once the food is eaten, the marriage is contracted. According to the community chief, what attracts men is not the nudity of the women but how they plait their hair, good manners and the tattoos the young women have.

Religion
The Kambari people are not Christians or Muslims like most of northern Nigeria. Instead, they are pagans who worship a god called Magiro. They also believe strongly in witchcraft and magic.

Economy
As part of the Rijua local council area, the Kambari people produce a large percentage of the crops consumed by the entire people of the area. The most popular crops produced are corn, millet, peanuts, beans, and rice. Nearly all of the locals keep chickens and goats for meat while the richer ones have cattle.

Well,they need some sort of orientation to start living like 21st century people and not some old culture that is not really ideal at the moment..

The Kambari people are just fine the way they are. Modernity does not always produce better human experience. In fact modernity has brought more destruction to the essence of humanity and "existential harmony" on this earth.
It would seem that the more humans adopted modernity, the more evil and decadent they become.
People like these (few of them left in the wild) are the remnants of what God actually wanted humans to be -PURE AND INNOCENT.
Tomorrow some people will go there trying to  "Christianize" or "Islamize" them and, in the process turn them into the evil beings that humans have become these days.
These people should be left alone. If they need something, let them ask by themselves.

These people are fine the way they are, human weren't born to live in a certain way. With time they will get to know about other areas.
