Ngalop - Bhutan

XXIX-4 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Ngalop | Paro | Bhutan, 2016


The population of around 800,000 is made up of several ethnic groups, including the Ngalop and the Sharchop. Ngalop means ‘the f irst risen’ and this group is the largest in the country. They live mostly in the north-western part of Bhutan. They are known as the people who brought Tibetan Buddhism to Bhutan when they migrated there in the ninth century. Buddhism has been by far the most important religion here ever since. The Ngalop community also adheres to a refined traditional system of etiquette, the Driglam Namzha, which prescribes how to behave and when to wear the traditional Bhutanese attire.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
