Description: Bele Kwara , Niger : July 13 , 2007 . A young Fulani girl stands just inside the door of her mud hut . While not as elaborate as many facial scars , she sports the two near vertical lines on either side of her nose , which are traditional facial scars of the Fulani tribe . In the background stands a mat made from stalks of millet woven together with strips of leather . The mat is called " yombeeo " in fulfulde , the language of the Fulani people , and comes from " yombe , " the word for " millet stalks . "
