Desia Kondh tribe, Orissa, India

DESIA KONDH Tribe.

 

Early morning play while kids waiting and playing while chapatis are being cooked.

 

The women in this tribe are readily identifiable by their geometric facial tattoos that on close observation bear striking similarity to tiger's whiskers. These identifying marks ensure they will recognize each other in the spirit world.
