The Ostrich People
The Vadoma, also known as the "ostrich people" or the "two-toed tribe," are a tribe living in the west of Zimbabwe. A substantial minority of this tribe has a condition known as ectrodactyly in which the middle three toes are absent and the two outer ones are turned in, resulting in the tribe being known as the "two toed" or "ostrich footed" tribe. It is reported that those with the condition are not handicapped and well integrated into the tribe. Indeed it may help in tree climbing.
