Traditional Dance - Garo people from Meghalaya, India

A very rare glimpse of the Garo People of Meghalaya performing a traditional dance.  The Garo were occasionaly categorized as a Naga tribe in very early ethnographic reports, but with increasing contact it was recognized that the are a distinct people.  The Garo were indeed fierce warriors, and some indication of that is clearly evident in this dance performance.  The dancers clad in traditional finery are accompanied by rhythmic music produced with long drums.
