Memories Project: Andaman Nicobar Tribal Research Institute
A forum for dialogue between the Andaman and Nicobar tribal communities, Islanders and other stakeholders to create an equitable and responsible growth and integration with the mainstream
The Andaman & Nicobar Islands are home to the Jarawa, Ongee, Shompen, Nicobarese, Sentinelese and Great Andamanese Tribal communities. Over centuries, varying degrees of integration with the 'outside' world has taken place for the communities with varying degrees of success. The Andaman and Nicobar Tribal Research Institute (ANTRI) was set up to initiate a dialogue between the tribal communities, the settlers, the government and other stakeholders to find a equitable and responsible future ahead. As part of this activity I am involved in capturing in film the voices of the people and document current and old practices.
