Did you know that there are still people on Earth living in small tribes, whose culture, rituals, and traditions have remained relatively unchanged throughout centuries, maybe even millennia? Yeah, you don’t think about this stuff everyday. Jimmy Nelson spent the past three years visiting the most hard to access places on the planet to capture mind blowing photos of the last surviving tribes on Earth, and here are some images from the full series available on Amazon that will make you question your privileges.

 

 

ASARO TRIBE
Location: Indonesia + Papua New Guinea
Photographed in 2010
These dudes, the legendary Asaro Mudmen, would frequently apply their mud and masks to terrorize other villages with occasional early-morning visits.

 

 

CHINESE FISHING TRIBE
Location: Guangxi, China
Photographed in 2010
The only tribe on Earth using the Cormorant fishing technique. To control the birds, the fishermen tie a snare near the base of the bird’s throat, preventing them from swallowing big fish.


MAASAI TRIBE
Location: Kenya + Tanzania
Photographed in 2010
Think of the Maasai as the modern-day Spartans. From boyhood to adulthood, young Maasai learn the responsibilities of being a man and a warrior. In fact this is one of the oldest warrior cultures in existence.

 

 

NENETS TRIBE
Location: Siberia – Yamal
Photographed in 2011
The Nenets are nomadic reindeer herders, traveling across the Yamal peninsula. These guys have been around, for more then a 1000 years, surviving temperatures from -50°C in winter to -35°C in summer.
