Herero or Ovaherero
The tribe consists of the Tjimba and Ndanuranda who live in Okahandja, the Zeraua in the Omaruru vicinity, and the Himba in Kaokoland and the Mbanderu in eastern Namibia.

They have chief councils to handle defense, protect their identity and manage tribal associations. They are subsistence farmers by raising cattle, fowl, sheep and grain.

In August (Mahaherero day) they gather in Okahandja to celebrate a day of remembrance to each honor the graves of their late leaders. The men march in uniforms and the women wear Victorian-style dresses with a matching hat or headdress mostly in black and red.

The Herero still practice ceremonial customs by keeping an ancestral fire burning and talking to their ancestors.
