No. 11 My Heritage

I love the fact that I am a Mosotho (Mu-su-to). I am a child of the Basotho people, who are a tribe that hails from the country of Lesotho in Southern Africa, but can be found to be living all over the world. There are various clans that make up the Basotho people, I come from the Bafokeng (Bah-fo-king) clan, who's totem is the Rabbit.

 That's a tiny backround into my cultrual heritage which is a huge part of who I am and fills me with great pride.
Here I am in a more morden version of the traditional female dress
