2. Apatani Nose Plugs
Nose plugs to look less desirable.
In the Ziro valley of Arunachal Pradesh, the Apatani women are considered the most beautiful women in all the Arunachal tribes. The women would make themselves look unattractive to protect against invaders by wearing large nose plugs.
The tradition is no longer being practiced by the younger members of the tribes but it is still a tradition we couldn’t ignore.
