Pictures of Indigenous People
1 Attachment(s)
So I was looking through some past trip photos and had the idea to start a thread of the best pictures of indigenous people you have come across in your motorcycle travels. I'll start, this is a pic of a Tamahumara Indian we met near Copper Canyon, Mexico. We were looking for a water fall and made a wrong turn. We ended up in an extremely rural and poverty stricken area. This proud gentleman was walking down the road. He couldn't have been more friendly and was a great ambassador for his country.

I can't imagine hauling firewood, that way.

Older guys in Cambodia are very friendly usually, and are drawn to dirt bikes. These two guys would have talked to me all day, if we could have just understood each other.

These two were collecting ebony wood. The woman was so curious, but timid...

A couple of nice fellows I met as I fixed a flat in Cuba:

You want to take my photo? But I haven't done my hair.

Flores, Indonesia.... in the hills south of Moni. These ladies had been down to the creek to do the washing and have a bath. The face ointment is to soften the skin... white stuff for the younger girls, more aggressive yellow stuff for the old duck

A bit further west, near Bajawa, Flores. Don't let them tell you Betelnut is good for your teeth,

Same place
