Andromeda, Princess of Ethiopia / ʼItyap̣yāwitwa Leʻelt ʼAndromédā

2021

by Ellenore Angelidis, Leyla Angelidis, Worku L. Mulat and Daniel Getahun

"Since the beginning of humanity, Ethiopia was the origin of some of the most remarkable and important people in history. The bones of one of the first hominids, Lucy, were found in Ethiopia, and stories of legendary Ethiopians stretch back into ancient history. Some of these legends were so famous that they were recorded in ancient Greek Mythology. One of these is the story of the daughter of ancient Ethiopian King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia: Princess Andromeda. Andromeda’s beauty was so renowned that it ignited the jealousy of Poseidon, who sent a great sea monster to devour her. But her plight inspired the Greek hero Perseus to intervene in her rescue, and then to marry her. Their story of love and hardship was immortalized as constellations which are still visible in Ethiopian night skies." -- publisher

Football Fun / Ṣawatā Kuʻeso ʼegri

2021

by Jane. Kurtz, Margi Brown, Judah Gerards, Caroline Greger, Rowan Schmitt and students from Findley Elementary School

"Take a closer look at Ethiopia’s national obsession through the eyes of the children who love to play football (soccer) in the fields and streets of Ethiopia. Like the self-described “football fanatics” who cheer on the national team, the Walia Antelopes, many Ethiopians enjoy playing for fun with friends and neighbors around East Africa. It is as much a social activity as a recreational one, and it is shared widely among the children of Ethiopia. " -- publisher
