JUBA APRIL 3: What an adventure!! I feel like this documentary takes me back to my roots in storytelling. It’s a piece that I’ve been wanting to tell for more than 5 years now, and I’m so glad by how it turned out!

I just spent 2 days living with the Mundari Tribe in rural SOUTH SUDAN and it was an incredible and humbling experience. After spending most of my life in busy cities, it was so refreshing to witness how the Mundari’s live such simple, genuine lives – far removed from the stresses of the Western World – yet they remain so happy and so close to nature.

The Mundaris are known as the “Cow Tribe” because they live among their cows (literally, thousands of them) and utilize their cattle for food, trade, dowry and survival. After spending 48 hours with the Mundari tribe, I learned that it’s the simple moments in life that matter most – like family time and laughter.

The Mundari are a small ethnic group of South Sudan. They are a part of the Karo people, one of the Karo ethnic Group. The group is composed of cattle-herders and agriculturalists and are part of Karo people which also includes Bari, Pojulu, Kakwa, Kuku and Nyangwara. Kutuk na Mundari is also the name of their language, which is similar to Kutuk na Kuku, Kutuk na Kakwa, Kutuk na Pojulu, Kutuk na Bari, and Kutuk na Nyangwara.

The traditional Mundari tribal lands are located roughly 75 kilometers north of Juba, the capital of South Sudan, and are centered on the town of Terekeka in the state of Central Equatoria.
