The presentation will focus on the life and culture of the Nicobarese, and the Institute’s research engagement with them before and after the tsunami. The event will also focus on the recent exchange visit between a delegation of six Nicobarese and the Sustainable Indigenous Futures Fund (SIF) that was initiated to support the self-rehabilitation efforts of the Nicobarese after the tsunami. The music CD produced by Andre Heller under the label “Austria for Asia” is available for sale, the proceedings of which will be donated to the SIF Fund. Further highlights of this event is a film on the Nicobarese rituals, a recently published book with images from the Nicobars and a presentation on the exchange visit.
