A Nishi tribesman, India

A Nishi tribesman wearing the traditional head-dress having a hornbill beak. The Nishi are found in the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. The custom of wearing a hornbill beak has had a deleterious effect on the bird's population. Nature reserves are being set up to protect the birds, while artificial materials, such as fibreglass, have been introduced as an alternative.
