Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.
in before tumblr screams about cultural appropiation
This doesn’t even count as cultural appropriation
This isn’t a person robbing a culture, to hell with the others
This is a child born right next to that culture
Who was embraced by the people and taught how to do some of the things they do
Which is not the same as cultural appropriation
No cultural appropriation. Just something really beautiful.
I love the picture where she’s cuddling a frog.
Never get too attached to anyone unless they also feel the same towards you, because one sided expectations can mentally destroy you.
