Tulakarne is a 16-year-old young man and member of the Suri tribe from a mountain village in Ethiopia, located on the border with Sudan. He has prepared himself for "stick fighting", an ancestral ceremony consisting of an unprotected one-on-one stick battle against young members of neighbouring tribes. The fight, which can be furious and can also result in death, represents a ritual passage from youth to manhood.

تولاكارني، شاب يبلغ من العمر 16 عاماً وهو عضو في قبيلة سوري من قريةٍ جبلية في إثيوبيا تقع على الحدود مع السودان. أعدّ نفسه للقتال بالعصا وهو احتفال متوارث من الأجداد يقتضي القتال بالعصا من دون حماية مع شباب من القبائل المجاورة. يُعتبر القتال الذي يمكن أن يكون وحشياً طقساً من طقوس العبور من مرحلة الشباب إلى الرجولة وقد تنتج عنه وفاة أحد الأطراف المقاتلة.
