China is Surveilling and Threatening Uighurs in the U.S. China is Surveilling and Threatening Uighurs in the U.S. Ants Among Elephants by Sujatha Gidla review – life as an ‘untouchable’ in modern India. Not long ago, at a conference that brought together academics, writers and artists in Kochi in south India, the historian Vivek Dhareshwar unsettled his audience by saying that there was no such thing as caste – that it was a conceptual category the British used to understand and reduce India, which was internalised almost at once by Indians.
“Caste” was not a translation of “jaati”, said Dhareshwar; “jaati” was a translation of “caste” – that is, the internalisation by Indians of the assumptions that the word caste involve meant they took its timelessness and authenticity for granted. Dhareshwar seemed to be implying – forcefully and outlandishly – that caste was at once a colonial inheritance and a habit of thinking, whose provenance no one felt the need to inquire into any longer. This was deeply nervous-making. There was one sense, though, in which Dhareshwar’s talk was necessary. . • Ants Among Elephants is published by Daunt. .

When Phejin Konyak was a girl, she'd sit on her grandfather's lap in front of a roaring fireplace, with a pot of black tea simmering. When she went to boarding school at age 4, she began to realize that her grandfather's tattooed body – and indeed, the tattooed bodies of his fellow tribesmen – were quite extraordinary.
"All sorts of tribesmen would pass by our home or halt here for the night. And now, Phejin has written a book, The Last Of The Tattooed Headhunters (Roli books), documenting the tattooing traditions and the headhunting rituals of her ancestors. And then, change and modernity swept through Konyak territory at an alarming pace. Reindeer Herders of the Russian Arctic. Asia. China. Japan. Udskriv.
We’re back from Tribal Quest Siberia! « MyHeritage Blog. The MyHeritage delegation recently returned from a third Tribal Quest expedition — this time to Siberia — to continue our mission to preserve the family histories of remote tribes.
Throughout their month-long journey, the team documented the stories of the Nenets people living in the Yamal Peninsula in Siberia, preserving the unique heritage of the nomadic herder tribe. The trip to Siberia faced particular challenges, because of extreme weather conditions and transportation difficulties, which made traveling to remote families near-impossible.

He has devoted projects to both imagined characters and real-life figures—road sweepers, water-polo players, practitioners of Mardi Gras rituals in New Orleans and pagan traditions in Europe—interested, always, in how people “look the part.” In his latest series, “YOKAINOSHIMA,” Fréger catalogues the monsters, or Yokai, of Japanese folklore. Made between 2013 and 2015, and collected in a book published this month by Thames & Hudson, the pictures in the project form a colorful encyclopedia that displays figures of Japanese custom strangely removed from the world of their origin.
