Wordless Wednesday 006: Tribal women

Tuesday, April 13, 2010 6:35 PM Posted by MamaGirl

Another update set in the auto-post mode. I am not sure which tribe they belong to but these women work as entertainers/performers at the hotel where the VSO Coast Volunteers had a 3day conference two months ago. I have a feeling that these women do not exactly enjoy what they're doing but they  have no other choice. They earn from performing their tribal dance every night.

    They look great in their outfits. They certainly don't look overly happy. I'm sure their life is not easy.

  2. Libby Lu Says:

    You're right. They don't seem to be particularly enjoying it. Kind of sad.

  3. Grampy Says:

    It is sad. But I believe they need the money. I am sure the show was great.

  4. RNSANE Says:

    How wonderful for guests, however, to be able to see these dances. They are probably not paid nearly what they deserve and I am sure that is part of the problem!

    Very regal and elegant looking, but they don't seem happy at all. Beautiful photo!

  6. Sukhmandir Kaur Says:

    It's a way of preserving heritage but must be hard to be impoverished and confronted with opulence when preforming. A sure way to breed even further discontent. They do look outstanding!

  7. Auntie E Says:

    Must have been a good show.. they look tired out.
