A wild bird perches without fear on a little girl's outstretched arm. Representing freedom, the child comes from the Akha hill tribe, living in Thailand's northern hills. This is a proud and timeless culture, struggling to preserve its ancestral values through their traditional skills and knowledge. Akhas believe in continuity and see themselves as a link in the chain of life, which includes birth, procreation, the preservation of the Akha way of life ? which venerates family life ? and death, seen as a meeting with their ancestors.
