Ethiopia’s Oromos celebrate Irreechaa thanksgiving festival

Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, the Oromo, on Sunday celebrated Irreecha, the annual thanksgiving festival, at Hora Harsede, a lake in the south central town of Bushoftu.

Millions from across Oromia, a regional state in Ethiopia and the homeland of the Oromo people, came together to mark the onset of Birra, the spring season.

While the festival is being held in Bishoftu for ages, celebrations returned to the capital Addis Ababa in 2019 for the first time in 150 years.

People in groups flock to the lake chanting songs, brandishing clubs painted in the Oromo tricolor of black, red and white.
