#Repost @alyssapachuau • • • • • • Folktale Week Day01. Home 🌏 The Story of Creation (An Apatani folktale from Arunachal Pradesh) “At first Kujum-Chantu, the earth, was like a human being; she had a head, and arms and legs, and an enormous fat belly. The original human beings lived on the surface of her belly. One day it occurred to Kujum-Chantu that if she ever got up and walked about, everyone would fall off and be killed, so she herself died of her own accord. Her head became the snow-covered mountains ; the bones of her back turned into smaller hills. Her chest was the valley where the Apa-Tanis live. From her neck came the north country of the Tagins. Her buttocks turned into the Assam plain. For just as the buttocks are full of fat, Assam has fat rich soil. Kujum-Chantu's eyes became the Sun and Moon. From her mouth was born Kujum-Popi, who sent the Sun and Moon to shine in the sky.” (Myths of the North-East Frontier of India by Verrier Elwin) : I’m hoping to cover one folktale from each state in the North East. With limited time for research, there could be errors regarding traditional outfits and fabric patterns. If there are any, I will be more than happy to get your inputs. Having said that, welcome to incredible North East India 💖 #folktaleweek #folktaleweek2019 #ink #art #inkart #illustration #watercolor #folktalesofindia #apatani #arunachalpradesh #arunachal #magic

The Apatani They are famous for the nose plugs and face tattooed and It is believed that the practice was historically done to all adult Apatani women in a bid to deter tribal raiders. Each time the tribe was attacked, their women would be kidnapped and never seen again. The Apatani leader decided that the most beautiful woman should have large circular nose plugs, known as Yaping Hurlo, placed into the sides of their nose The nose plugs and facial tattoo custom in this tribe are slowly being consigned to history. This age-old tradition was observed until the 1970s when the government imposed a ban on the nose plugs incisions. 📷 Sony A7M3 FB: https://fb.me/tehhanlin Flickr: https://flic.kr/vibranze ##### 阿帕塔尼 他们以鼻塞和纹身脸而出名。据信,这种习俗在历史上是对所有成年阿帕塔尼妇女进行的,目的是阻止部落突袭。 每次部落遭到袭击时,他们的妇女就会被绑架,再也不会见到。 阿帕塔尼(Apatani)领导人决定,最美丽的女人应该将大号圆形鼻塞(称为Yaping Hurlo)放在鼻子的两侧 这个部落的鼻塞和面部纹身习俗正在慢慢被赋予历史。 这种古老的传统一直被观察到,直到1970年代政府对鼻塞切口实施禁令。 #india #apatani #tribe #sony #sonyindia #natgeo #natgeoasia #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #sonyimages #sonyalpha #yourshotindia #hipaae #bbctravel #cnntravel #barcroft #bealpha #arunachalpradesh #unesco #unescoworldheritagesite #apatani #a7m3 #a7iii #世界遺產 #tehhanlinportrait

The Apatanis or, as they call themselves the Tanis, trace their origin as a migratory tribe in the Apatani Plateau in Lower Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh, India. Today they are settled in the Ziro Valley of the area. As per tales it is said that women of this tribe are extremely pretty and used to be abducted by men of neighbouring tribes for their beauty. In order to stop this from happening, the elders decided to start tattooing the faces of the women and inserting nose plugs from a very young age to make them look less appealing. Called Tippei, these tattoos are done when an Apatani girl is about 10-years-old by the elder women. The ink was made up of pig’s fat mixed with soot from the fireplace. Though younger generation are not keen on carrying this practise, the elder women of the tribe consider the nose plugs and tattoos as an integral part of being a Tani woman. P.S: This pic has been captured after taking permission from them. . . . .#ziro #zirovalley #apatani#potraitphotography #mobilephotography #arunachalpradesh #apatanitribe #storiesofindia #soi #incredibleindia #natgeotravel #natgeotravelindia #northeastdiaries #travelgram #traveldiaries#infinitedetours #people#village#villagewalk

Hidden in the rain-forests of Arunachal Pradesh in Northeast India lies the village of Ziro, home to the Apatanis. Many of the Apatani women wear large nose plugs and have tattoos on their faces to make them look less appealing. They did this to look “less appealing” to other tribes who were coming in and stealing the women. ## 印度東北部阿魯納恰爾邦(Arunachal Pradesh)的雨林中隱藏著阿帕塔尼斯(Apatanis)所在地的茲羅(Ziro)村。 許多阿帕塔尼(Apatani)婦女戴著大鼻塞,並在其臉上刻有紋身,以使它們看起來不那麼有吸引力。 他們這樣做是因為其他部落進入並偷走這些婦女,所以就用了鼻塞和麵部文身使部落婦女 “看起來沒有吸引力”。 #india #ziro #apatani #tribe #sony #sonyindia #natgeo #natgeoasia #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #yourshotphotographer #sonyimages #sonyalpha #yourshotindia #hipaae #bbctravel #cnntravel #barcroft #bealpha #arunachalpradesh #unesco #unescoworldheritagesite
