Project Goal

Safeguard the heritage of the people of Arunachal Pradesh

Location: India

"I like to think of our heritage as an elastic band. I want to stretch this as much into the future generations as we can — till it reaches its edge and snaps."

The ancient tribal cultures of India’s Arunachal Pradesh state are succumbing to the influences of the modern world.

Determined not to let this remote part of the world’s heritage slip away, Moji Riba has devised an ambitious plan to involve young people in documenting the state’s beliefs and customs and help this rich culture to live on.
