Portrait of a Zande (Makaraka) warrior

Makaraka (also, Iddio or Adio) are an ethnic group indigenous to Central Africa, closely related to the powerful Azande or NiamNiam, occupying the Bahr-el-Ghazal west of Lado. They came originally from the country of the Kibas, north of the Welle River. They do not extract the incisors.[1] Currently, they form part of the population of the South Sudanese state of Central Equatoria.
