The Vadoma tribe lives deep within the confines of western Zimbabwe. Derogatorily referred to as the “ostrich people," the Vadoma suffer from a rare genetic condition called ectrodactyly, which affects one in four children within the population. Ectrodactyly, or “lobster claw syndrome,” can affect either the hands or feet. In the case of the Vadoma, the middle three toes are absent and the two outer ones are turned inward.
