• The last hunter-gatherers: the life of a primitive tribe in Nepal
Hunters and gatherers, as they say in history books - a primitive people who lived thousands of years ago, before they invented agriculture and livestock breeding. It's a hard life, from which most of the tribes abandoned since the dawn of civilization. But deep in the forests of Nepal is a small nomadic tribe rout, which is still hunting wild animals and gathering deals. These amazing pictures taken by photographer Andrew Newey Surhet in the province in the east of Nepal, show what life can be in a very primitive conditions. All members of the tribe, regardless of age make a contribution to the common life of the settlement. Now there are less than 150 people, and it's really a tribe may soon disappear.
Members of the tribe rout - hunters and gatherers. In particular, they are able to catch the monkeys, which are then eaten. In the picture - one of the elders of the tribe returned from a successful hunt.
Rautio are highly dependent on the environment, since nothing is grown. In the photo one of the members of the tribe cuts a tree trunk.
The women of the tribe wear bright clothes.
Each member of the tribe contributes to the life of the community, whether cutting wood or grain shuffling. The picture shows the baby has already prepared the wood on the back.
As the rout - nomads, they are constantly moving. Nobody has a permanent job or go to school. In the picture - a little girl in traditional dress.
Like hunter-gatherers thousands of years ago, the problem in rout distributed by gender. The picture shows a woman plucked corn and cook.
Raut love cut out various things made of wood, which are then exchanged for clothing and other necessary items, if necessary.
On the rout know very little because they prefer to communicate only within their own tribe and rarely interact with the rest of the local population.
Life rout is hard, and even harder is because their habitats are destroyed. This means that they have to move very often.
In recent years, as deforestation rout forced more and more to interact with the local population.
Traditionally rout living in tents from the leaves and branches, using colored cloth for extra protection.
