Biographical / Historical
The Dasenec (Daasanach) are an ethnic group whose main homeland is in the Debub Omo Zone of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People's Region of Ethiopia. They have traditionally been pastoralists, but in recent years have become primarily agropastoral. Russell Deihl served as a Peace Corps volunteer among the Dasenec from 1974-1976.
