We came across this little 5 year old Nomad child living in a large open-sided tent with her extended family just off a make-do dry-river-bed road somewhere between the Todra and Dades Gorges, Morocco. We learned that the little seashell attached to her forelock was intended to keep the evil spirits away and assumed the loving hands that surround her are those of her siblings and cousins.
Location: Dades Valley, High Atlas Mountains, Morroco
