Leakey's Angels: Why Women Make Better Primate Researchers According To Louis Leakey

Mary and Louis LeakeyGlamTribale and Anne of Carversville readers know that I have a strong interest in paleontologists, archaeologists and anthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey and their work in and around the Omo Valley region of Ethiopia and Lake Turkana, bordering Ethiopia and Kenya.

Read our in-depth stories about the Omo Valley Mursi and Surma tribes at GlamTribale.

It’s only recently that I came to know about the Omo Valley region and Lake Turkana as the ‘origin’ of human civilization as we know it. Previously, I knew  Africa as the origin of humanity, without understanding that the Leakey discoveries lay very close to many other events and subjects of interest in my life.

Long-time GlamTribale and Anne muse Dan Eldon, the young photo journalist stoned to death in Mogadishu, Somalia 20 years ago was good friends with Lara Leakey, granddaughter of the famous scientists Louis and Mary.

Dan’s mom Kathy Eldon is now a digital friend and potential artistic collaborator of mine. Kathy worked for the Leakeys when she lived in Nairobi. is devoted to telling women’s stories “from fashion to flogging” with a strong emphasis on women’s rights at home in America and internationally.

Digging much deeper into the history and contributions of Mary and Louis Leakey to our understandings of human history and social behavior, one quickly comes upon the subject of women in science and gender studies — and Louis Leakey’s support of women in primate research.

One can’t study Louis Leakey for more than an hour without learning about his unusual support for three women – Leakey’s Angels, as they are called: chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall; Dian Fossey who studies mountain gorillas; and BirutÄ— Galdikas, an observer of orangutans.

Louis Leakey and Jane Goodall

Why, I wondered, would Louis Leakey stake so much of his professional reputation on supporting women as researchers of primate behavior?  Why did his Trimates, as they are also called, captivate an international audience of animal behavioral enthusiasts?

Firstly, Louis Leakey was crippled with arthritis, for which he had a hip replacement at age 65.  If he wanted to understand primate behavior, others would have to do the research.

Dan Eldon & Mom Kathy Eldon Take Us Into The Omo Valley & Heart Of Consciousness

Images of the Omo Valley people by Hans SilvesterWe are off to Africa, Ethiopia specifically in an ongoing series of articles about the Omo Valley people, living in southern Ethiopia near the Lake Turkana basin.

As Benjamin Roussey explains in his series of GlamTribale blog posts about the Omo Valley people, Lake Turkana remains the oldest place on the globe that houses evidence of human habitation. Currently all paleoanthropology roads lead to Lake Turkana and the work of the famous Leakey family, launched by Louis and Mary Leakey and now followed by several Leakey members. 

Each day of my GlamTribale journey is a trip into my own personal history and connections. I arrived at Lake Turkana on my own — with no help from my muse Dan Eldon, the young photographer who was killed in Somalia. Or so I thought.

I was about to write that my heart was pounding a couple months ago when I Googled “Dan Eldon + Leakey” and read on that Dan and Louis Leakey’s granddaughter Lara were best friends. How incredible that Dan was so close to research about the beginnings of human civilization!

There are parts of my story I will leave untold for the moment, because I want to share them first with Dan’s mother Kathy, who is now a friend of mine. That reality is in itself is a pretty incredible stop on my own journey.

‘Gaugin in Africa’ by Dan Eldon @

Being a fastidious fact checker, I just Googled again and this time I uncovered another piece of information in this interconnecting puzzle. Dan Eldon was close to the Leakey family because his mother and my friend Kathy worked with the Leakey family. Reading about Kathy Eldon on, my heart tightened yet again.

Anne Discovers Jozi Maboneng Johannesburg's Artistry & Enlightenment

Watching this GlobalTribe video featuring Creative Visions’ Amy Eldon, I’m having a eureka moment about my own productivity and inability to officially launch my newsletter ‘Engage’.

STOP!!!!!, Anne. You don’t need to find new material for ‘Engage’. Your life and websites are overflowing with newsletter material. Stop this relentless pursuit of more perfection and mine the rich editorial landscape at your fingertips.

Just now I found this inspiring video above,  after posting this very chic editorial:

Ross Garrett Captures Artistic Chic in Jozi Maboneng for Elle South Africa January 2013

Because I’m never just a poster of materials blogger, I wanted to understand the meaning of ‘Jozi Maboneng’. After a quick search, off I went to this special district in Johannesburg — a place that is dedicated to peace, humanity, understanding and artistic creativity.

Tribo Rio Omo Africa

Ethiopia’s Omo Valley People

Ethiopia’s Surma and Mursi tribes in the southwest Omo River valley region present a unique perspective on self-expression in the African style. As a result of their nomadic lifestyle, location near lush vegetation, and inventive nature, tribe members have taken body painting and adornment to a new level of creativity which has inspired the color palette for ethniciti collections.

Photographer Hans Silvester writes in his book ‘Natural Fashion: Tribal Decoration from Africa’:

An arena of incessant tribal land and guerrilla warfare, and a hotbed for the arms and ivory trades, the Omo Valley nevertheless plays host — when the Kalashnikovs fall silent — to some astonishing events of a much more peaceful nature. Among the fifteen tribes that have lived in this Rift region since time immemorial, the Surma and the Mursi, two tribes that get on well together, share a taste for body painting and extravagant decorations borrowed from nature. The former is done mainly with materials from the plant world, whereas the latter predominantly comprises products of the hunt — all kinds of prophies, including buffalo horns, warthog tusks, monkey skins and more. 

GlamTribale for Kol Ami in Elkins Park

GlamTribale Omo Valley-inspired raffle gift for Oct. 13-14 The Crafts & Fine Arts Show at Kol Ami in Elkins Park, PA.It’s an exclusive set of designs that will only be made once to support the wonderful community projects of the Kol Ami temple. While we will make an entire collection inspired by the Omo Valley people, these three pieces remain one-only pieces that will not be reproduced.

The copper findings for each piece have been imported from Israel. The necklace features Hebron beads at least 200 years old. Hebron is the burial place of Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths. Glassmaking in Hebron was not recorded until after the fall of the ancient city of Lebanon-Tyre to Crusaders.

The Hebron beads were made using Dead Sea Salts, in a variety of colors including green, yellow and blue. The beads used in our Kol Ami gift are the larger ones called Mongur. They were widely traded in Egypt, the Nile region and Sudan.

Our beads specifically came from Sudan, chosen because of Anne of Carversville’s history of standing ferocioiusly against the flogging of 40,000 women a year in Sudan.

The pieces are retail valued at:

Necklace: $325

Bracelet: $175

Earrings: $125 (Note: the pierced earrings can be converted to clip on Sunday Oct. 14th)

The Kol Ami community has a record of standing for women’s rights, and I wanted to make this linkage in the jewelry between their community efforts on behalf of women and my own.

Come see us this weekend at the Kol Ami!! ~ Anne
