Over the years, The Rautes have been intensely scrutinised by local authorities and residents for their ‘ nomadic ‘ way of life. As a result, they shun away from modern civilisation despite the pressure, wishing to consolidate their traditional nomadic lifestyle.
When this generation passes on, the way of life of one of the last nomadic hunter-gatherers of the Himalayan foothills will disappear forever. And with them will go a distinct language, culture and a system of beliefs.
A SUPPORT TO THE LAST NOMADS OF NEPAL
Desperately fighting for their survival, these Rautes are dignified people with their roots in the deep forest of Nepal.
Together with our partner KOLPA Nepal, we proudly present the craftsmanship of the Raute’s in support of their livelihood.
