The Ovahimba. We know them as simply, HIMBA.
The most remote and unchanged traditional tribe that lives in the Skeleton Coast.
Whirlygigs are difficult to adequately describe: kind of like miniature windmills embodied in whimsical toys perched on sticks in the front yard or back garden.
They are as simple or complicated as one desires. The easy ones have wings that turn in opposite directions, connected with a screw to the silhouette of a bird or cartoon character cut from a handy pine board. The more complex versions might include dancing penguins, an old man chopping wood, or a woman stirring a bowl.
