      Some photos of ‘Trad Tribes’ from around the world (there is some archery gear in there too). Some are more ‘remote’ than others. I’ve always liked the traditional pants of the Dani tribe from PNG, maybe I’ll try and wear them at the next trad shoot I go to 😉

      Fantastic and uplifting! I’m not sure how the gauchos and Indian royalty fit in with “ancient tribes before they disappear” theme, but the photos are spectacular and the video at the end even better. With the abovementioned exclusions, these are the real human beings. Thanks Jim!

      The character in many of those faces look so genuine. It says they’ve lived! May we all look like complete s&$t by today’s standards and be proud of it.

      It’s a shame that the so called “modern” of societies have all through history attempted to change people who seem to be perfectly happy in their way of life. Often, in failing to do so, they exterminate. What a waste. That was good find Jim. Thank for sharing.

      Who is to say what culture is “better” or more “advanced” a culture of rich relationships, or a culture of stuff.

      Very Cool AusJim… I note that all humans used jewelry/personal adornment through time…

      I’ve owned some ancient Anasazi shell and bone necklaces, bracelets, and pendants, the shells come from the Sea of Cortez. Interesting that while the Anasazi lived in Northern Arizona where copper, gold, silver and turquoise were in supply, the women wanted shells from 1000miles away… Kinda like today, always a chore to keep the womenfolk happy… Hehehe
