Video: Speaking with tribal people in Chhattisgarh

Via Flickr:
This was taken in the rural, primarily tribal district of Bastar in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. This couple I recorded here have been married for many years, and are the head of a large family that make tribal handicrafts for sale for (mostly) domestic Indian tourists. The man on the right (mostly unseen) was our multi-lingual local guide: he's mentioned in Lonely Planet India. We simply contacted the Chhattisgarh state tourism board office in Jagdalpur, and asked for an English-speaking guide. He is probably the only one, and he's excellent, so if you're planning to visit Bastar District, I'd suggest hiring him.
