Mortal birds are immortal in tribal culture

The free flying birds wave the age-old tribal tradition. While digging out the underlying fact tribal couture, a strange fact pops out; the fur skins of wild birds are the main decor, treasured by the tribal ancestors. In retrospect, we will find the active use of Peacock quills by Kings and Queen. Hindu Mythology has attached the multi hued quills with Lord Krishna and now a few filmy scenes has showcased it romantically. But Apart from this classic tales, the main theme lies in how strongly it depicts the culture of different tribes.

Where Peacock expresses the beauty of India, Eagle advocates the mythical belief of the tribes of the very country. According to the traditional tribal culture, an eagle is the messenger of the Almighty. This wild birds carries the instruction of God for tribal folks and the bird wings are a key to this contract. Like the inseparable animal skin and teeth, the bird beaks and skin revolve around the socialite of Nagaland , Himachal Pradesh and many other tribes all around the globe. The feathers are taken specially for ornamenting their look. Many tribal festival is incomplete with the feathered man, meaning the normal human beings adorned with feather attributes, like bird's head turned upside down on their heads or feathers stitched out on their clothes.

And surprisingly, in this era of science, the Irula tribes of Attapadi in Kerala are still practicing the traditional way of preparing medicines from burning owl feathers, nails and skin
