VADOMA: THE PEOPLE WITH TWO TOES

I know right…STRANGE.
Well, I stumbled upon a video on the Vadoma people of Zimbabwe on Instagram and decided to do a research on them on the internet and guess what I learnt….


The Vadoma people, also known as the Bantwana tribe, which means children/descendants, are a tribe living in the north of Zimbabwe, primarily in the Urungwe and Sipolilo districts on the Zambezi river valley.


There are many in their community, who can’t wear shoes due to the shape of their feet. They only have two big toes on each foot.

They don’t have middle toes and the two outer ones are turned in. They still can walk but with some difficulty according to the shape, running is also difficult to them. It is said this condition helps them while climbing trees, though.

The elders of the Vadoma people claim that their remote ancestors were bird like beings who came from the stars and mixed their DNA with early earth women to produce offspring. The elders state that their ancient ancestors came from the star systems of Sirius and first established colonies on a planet within our solar system that they refer to as Liitolafisi.


A substantial minority of vaDoma have a condition known as ectrodactyly(
split hand, cleft hand, derived from the Greek ektroma (abortion) and daktylos (finger) involves the deficiency or absence of one or more central digits of the hand or foot and is also known as split hand/split foot malformation ) in which the middle three toes are absent and the two outer ones are turned in, resulting in the tribe being known as the “two-toed” or “ostrich-footed” tribe.  (https://www.zambianobserver.com/vadoma-the-ostrich-people-of-zimbabwe-who-have-just-two-toes/)
