hi Yuval

This portrait is something looking like a tribal style in Borneo jungle but sadly without any note.

tfs, bill

Default To trekks: Naga Konyak

The Naga are people living in the states of Arunachal, Assam, Manipur and above all in Nagaland.
Some of them are living in Burma.
The Konyaks are distinction Nagas, centering in the north of Nagaland, mostly in Mon district.
They have 6 Anges (Chiefs, kings) controlling all Konyak villages.
This picture was taken in the biggest konyak village of Longwa situated half on brumes land and half on Indian land.
Just old men are still tattooed, and in the following series Ill bring some of those wariers faces.
Enjoy!
