Today is the International Day of the World's Indigenous People!

Within the small area of East Nepal where we work, there are a dozen distinct communities with their own unique language, culture and religious practice. Did you know that 123 different languages are spoken in Nepal? The cultural diversity here is truly amazing.

In photo, a Kulung Grandma-daughter duo pose in their ethnic attire.

How cool is he?

A community member from Gudel looks dapper in his locally hand crafted outfit - a traditional Dhaka topi (cap), a woolen homespun muffler and a fyanga (waistcoat) made of wild nettle fiber and wool.

Our working areas in Nepal are some of the last places where the rich heritage of cottage industry and craft is still alive. Swipe to see the waistcoat being created in a handloom as well as the initial process involved in making the nettle thread.

Purna Kulung is a shaman and a farmer. During ceremonies, he channels a powerful earth spirit that can heal illnesses and protect homes. He is a cornerstone of the small community of Saadi, and one of hundreds of similar shamans (or ‘dami’ in local language) in the areas where we implement our important development work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shamans need to eat and send their children to school, too. Purna earns a small living from his services as a shaman, but supplements his income through growing new cash crops that he sells to his neighbors and shares with his family. His family is one of over 3,500 subsistence farming families participating in our income generation programs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Some portraits from the weekly haat market of Bung.

In our working areas, weekly markets in town and village centers are still the most important events to buy and sell eveyday essentials. The markete are lively colorful amalgamation of people and products. Goods traditonal and modern are often found squeezed in the same stall. So where you may find a carton of instant noodles, you may also easily find a bamboo handmade basket.

Our Chief Guide, Arjun Cholochha Mantherbu @wild_destination, collects stinging nettle to prepare a Kulung classic: nettle soup #nepal #discovernepal #himalayantrekking #annapurna #nettlesoup #kulung

For centuries, honey hunters of the Kulung people in Nepal have risked their lives to harvest hallucinogenic honey. These honey hunters brave towering cliffs, armed only with hanging rope ladders and 25-foot bamboo poles. The Himalayan giant honeybees are responsible for this hallucinogenic honey, turning the pollen of the deadly rhododendron flower into a deep red honey that can cause hallucinations in those who consume it.

Los Kulung usan cuerda tejida a mano sobre rocas verticales cosechando alucinógenos de la miel de abejas que viven más de trescientos pies encima de las caras de roca de granito en Nepal. El fotógrafo, el cineasta y el escalador @renan_ozturk viajaron a Nepal para documentar una cultura de cazadores de miel y la última cosecha de miel tradicional. •
