Ateetee Travel and Tour is a tourists’ service provider company established in 2010, registered with the Investment Agency of Ethiopia and Ministry of trade and Industry and is engaged in provision of services for international and domestic tourists combined with eco-tourism development. It provides tour, travel, lodging, and vehicle services to ensure the interests of its customers to the best of its’ ability.

The name “Ateetee “ represents a cultural song of Oromo women in Ethiopia, which is performed in assembly by taking a stick known as Sinqee with them, as ritual to pray for GOD during bad occurrences like prolonged drought; to inspire peace, prosperity, health, multiplicity of cattle and safe journey for travelers.

 

It also reflects women’s collective decision making power and empowerment in the community as they use to pass major decisions affecting the community by putting sanction against someone who has bitten his wife or who attacked other women illegally or who violates certain community norms. It is also used for blessing someone when they come together for Ateetee. There is a firm respect for women during Ateetee in Ethiopia, especially in Oromo community to the extent that when women singing Ateetee go to war front and intervene in the war to make peace that war should stop immediately and start peaceful reconciliation due to the respect and power of Ateetee women to make peace.
