These pages are dedicated to the humanity of the Baiga tribe in MP India.
After months of planning and negotiation the photographer was permitted to not only visit but make an extended stay with a tribal village in December 1998. The prime purpose of this stay was to capture the tribal way of life and illustrate a new book by Margaret Watts-Carter called `Free Spirit' to be published for the Millennium.
Sadly Western influences wrack havoc with their gentle lifestyle and much needs to be done to provide protection for this dwindling community.
Our primary concern is their health and if you would like to help please e-mail the webmaster for instructions on how to wire money to the Kawardha Baiga Tribal Trust
If you would like to visit a Baiga community it MUST be arranged via Margaret at Palace Kawardha.
