The Mursi tribe (sometimes called the Murzu tribe) are an African tribe from the isolated Debub Omo Zone in Southern Ethiopia near the border with Sudan. There are an estimated 10,000 people in the Mursi tribe and the Ethiopian government groups them together with the Suri and Me’en tribes and calls the collective group the Surma. However, the Mursi tribe reject the term Surma and refuse to identify themselves as Surma.
