Tribal Festivals

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As global monoculture erodes cultural diversity, the variety of tribal festivals and rituals is a reminder that humans have diverse insights, different priorities, and choose other – successful – ways of living.

For tribal people, their life completely revolves around rituals and the spirits who watch over them. These images are from the Survival International website gallery, an organisation who is working towards the rights of tribal people worldwide. Tribals worldwide are being threatened off their land to make room for more construction and development and without their homelands, the fabric of their identity collapses. If you are interested to support their cause, you can do so here.
