Learning of the tribes within Arunachal Pradesh continued to be intriguing. They were so culturally rich and many individuals had artistic talents as was evident by the lecture provided by Lumi. In a land that is so vastly diverse where the people know multiple languages and engage in artistic talents, it can make someone from the USA feel like they have so much more to learn and experience. India has such varied landscapes, and through Vijay Gi’s leadership, we had the opportunity to meet a wide range of individuals of varied walks of life in Northeastern India. From Lumi, who is a lecturer of fine arts, to a tea estate owner to members of the Mishmi tribe. Each one had their own unique stories to tell and strengths to lend to their communities. By the end of the day, we as a group were afforded the education and experience of dabbling within the culture found within Aruchanal Pradesh.
