Presented below are edited film clips from Professor Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf field trip to the Apa Tani Valley in Arunachal Pradesh, north eastern India. From 1912 to 1944, no exploratory expedition had entered the Subansiri region of the North-East Frontier regions, until Haimendorf, as Special Officer in Subansiri, visited a number of the villages in 1944 and 1945. Haimendorf focussed his ethnographic attentions on the Apa Tani people, who are documented in the footage below. His excellent book The Apa Tanis and their Neighbours (Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1962) describes his field trip in detail and describes the culture of the peoples of this little-known area.
