We are not myths of the past, ruins in the jungle, or zoos. We are people and we want to be respected, not to be victims of intolerance and racism. Rigoberta Menchu, Guatemala Nobel Peace Prize Winner, 1992
Thus, indigenous peoples have become the most marginalized and vulnerable group in the country of Bangladesh in its thirty eight years of independence. There is no constitutional recognition of the indigenous peoples of Bangladesh the issue of the identity of the indigenous peoples of Bangladesh has led to much debate and controversy, and on occasions has brought indigenous leaders and government officials into sharp disagreement. They are only referred to as “backward segments of the population”. My project is a visual and narrative documentation of this Indigenous people express their daily life and their traditional and cultural condition in the society. I am using photography not only as a means of evidence, but also a link for the imagination.
