It’s funny to think that in this day and age, tribes do still exist.
In a world where new inventions are being created everyday and technology dominates our lives, we often forget there are tribes all around us that still preserve their old cultural backgrounds and traditions, no matter how advanced our society will ever become. These tribes can be found in South Africa, Africa, Asia, and surprisingly enough, even in the United States.
They’ve all managed to keep their tribal practices alive throughout the years. Un-contacted people, who are also often to as lost tribes, have made the decision to isolate themselves from any kind of global civilization. And it may come as quite a surprise, but there are still multiple isolated people living within our world.
This list consists of 15 photos taken from tribes all around the world that show the rituals that are still being practiced today and just how isolated people live to this day! The rituals on this list to some may seem bizarre or even absurd, but these continue and most likely always will respect their ancient cultural ways.
The tribes on this list live their lives in a very unique way, far different from us, and it’s quite intriguing to learn more about them and the way they live. We are all so consumed by our technology that we easily look over or forget that these tribes and kinds of people even exist in this day and age.
Check out these 15 photos taken from tribes around the world and the rituals and traditions they still perform and let us know what you think!
1. The Sambia Tribe – Perform Highly Unusual Ceremonies
The people from within the Sambia Tribe can be located in the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. This tribe is very well known for their acts of s*men ingestion practices with young boys. The initiation process of joining this tribe starts off with a boy being taken away from his mother at the ripe age of nine years old and put in an all-male hut for ten years! They engage in forced vomiting, nose bleeding, and ingest s*men for purification during this time. The relationships between men and women are very complex in this tribe with restrictions and rules between the two genders.
