Colors of the North: Portraits of the Golden Triangle

In remote and barely accessible regions of Thailand, Laos, Burma, and China, indigenous peoples have been living without the influence of microwavable dinners, iPods, and cell phones for millennia, instead perpetuating a simpler way of life with traditions and ancient practices rooted in their cultures for thousands of years.  With the tick of the clock, these tribes are slowly disappearing and their rich oral histories and veritable life knowledge is slipping by the wayside.

Enter American researcher and musician Victoria Vorreiter to save the day! She spent the last five years working to document these distinct histories, celebrations, and stories of the over 130 groups and subgroups in the region through her photography, musical recordings, and rarely before-seen video.

Anantara Golden Triangle Resort & Spa, located in the heart of Thailand’s hill tribe country, is proud to be the home for the upcoming display. Colors of the North: Portraits of the Golden Triangle will open October 22 and remain at the resort through January 22, 2011.
