Men show the whites of their teeth and eyes during the Yaake dance. In a remote part of the Sahara desert near lake Chad, the nomadic Wodaabe tribe (a subgroup of the Fulani ethnic group) take part in an annual courtship ritual competition called Gerewol ( Guérewol ) during which Young men dressed in elaborate ornamentation and made up in traditional face painting gather in lines to dance and sing, vying for the attentions of marriageable young women. The Wodaabe are also known as the Bororo tribe.
