4. Those really are stunning.

Thank you!

(Though the one with the large lip ornament was kinda freaky).

5. I was with it right up till the Maoris...

They're not a tribe and they're not remote, nor are they endangered....

My son was at the game tonight. The Maoris were awesome, he said.

7. It's good to see Americans trying to play proper football for a change!

Here's the direct link to it.

I wouldn't have minded watching that game. It sounds like the US didn't do too badly at all

8. Thanks for the correct link!

I was on my cell, trying to post a link to the gallery pic, but it didn't work properly for me, so I changed my link too.

Here's a pic from last night's game (yep, they took off their shirts! ):

Edited to include this tidbit...

In the 2006 census, there were an estimated 620,000 Māori in New Zealand, making up roughly 15% of the national population.

9. All the pictures were stunning, but the Tribes from the

frozen climates were just something else. The first set of pictures, the environment almost didn't look like earth imo. To make an enduring life in such environments speaks of their great persistence.

10. Remarkable!

Just wonderful, grasswire! Thanks for posting. So much breathtaking adornment. Man! The urge, or maybe instinct would be a better word, of homo sapiens to self-adorn. It's just so basic! The symbols and sacred markings and craftings and ornamentation - it's like a common language we all share.

13. why I didn't click the link.

 

Your title made me so sad that I just felt like if I did I'd be some gawker staring at pictures I have no right to. does that make any sense? I'm not criticizing folks who did click the link. Just a personal thing.

15. I know what you mean.

It is the same thing Edward Curtis did in the 19th century.
People have argued for two hundred years that native peoples are disappearing. Not. They are not.

14. Gauchos are not a tribe.

Not in the traditional sense, as in indigenous, like the Maasai. It is a lifeway, yes.
The Mapuche or Guarani, from that general region, are "tribes," a loded word indeed.

18. Yeah, I guess?

But are they as someone up thread suggested, the Maori are not endangered. I don't know that gauchos are either. They're not uncommon in the pampas and in Patagonia.

I think the more important questions we should ask ourselves: what causes the disappearances of indigenous groups (globalization is often the macro answer) and how can this be reversed.
I study this for a living, so this project bothers me a little bit. It is "othering" and "romanticizing" in a way that similar, previous century projects were as well.

21. "Should" it be reversed?

Do we have an obligation to try to stop the river?

22. Some of us feel we do, with a caveat.

I don't presume to speak for indigenous peoples, but if they want their lifeways protected, then yes. We have an obligation- or at least I do as someone who will make a career studying native communities. I have an obligation to put my money where my mouth is, so to speak. Most native communities in Latin America want their lands protected from ruinous capitalistic degradation, and to have a voice at the table. They want to pass on their traditions and languages. They want their kids to have a fair shake, whether that be at getting an education, or maintaining their way of life.

27. yes, or it could have been titled "Beautiful People of the World"


Even though the photos are obviously well-posed, they still convey something so apart from our own Western appearances - something wild, perhaps.

16. These lifestyles depicted may be endangered

but it's not as if the peoples themselves are dying out; there's a Rabari family that sells ghee and milk in my neighborhood in Mumbai.

25. Some of these civilizations will probably be around long after ours is gone.

I'm pretty sure our fossil fueled and very fragile consumer economy won't last.
