Abstract:
During the Myoko festival (late March to mid-April), many Apatanis used to perform acrobatics, swinging on a cane rope tied between two tall poles. These poles, cut from hardwood trees and approximately 15-20 metres high, are erected on or near a ritual platform in the village playing host to other villages during the festival. One of those poles is seen here near a platform, on which people are sitting, and a few men are winding thick cane into ropes. Other poles are visible in the background. The acrobatics are still performed, though not as frequently as in the past. ( en )

General Note:
Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf (1909-1995) was born and educated in Vienna, gaining a PhD in anthropology from the University of Vienna in 1931. A grant from the Rockefeller Foundation enabled him to study at the London School of Economics, under the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski. In 1936, he went to the Naga Hills in northeast India for his first fieldwork; over the next four decades, he worked extensively in south & central India, northeast India and Nepal. In 1950 he was appointed Professor of Anthropology at SOAS, where he established the Department of Anthropology. During his career, he published seventeen books, most of them ethnographies of tribal cultures. He was President of the Royal Anthropological Institute (1975-77) and a pioneer in the field of visual anthropology.
