Ribbons of Red

Akha Village, Northern Thailand

Fall 2006

This picture was taken at almost the same time as the “Immolation” picture.  These were the three wise men from the village.  The red scarfs on their heads represent their importance in the village.  These were the men that I ate the pig that we sacrificed for the ceremony.
