Mangbetu ethnic group, Democratic Republic of Congo
This should have been put into context rather than just some GIF for people to gawk at like some freaks of nature.
Mangbetu people practiced head binding or Lipombo. It was a status symbol amongst the ruling class. Now, depending on what you believe this practice either came from Kemet or went to Kemet. As they have mummies and art work that have elongated skulls in Kemetic societies as well. There are also some South Amerikans tribes that did head binding. I being a student of all things not normal have to thought to myself that this practice was these people copying a people that were not from this planet. I know that sounds crazy, but it really very common. Look at the Dogon for instants they have a recorded history of these interactions.
