Bee festival and media workshop hosted by Accord – Gudalur (Tamil Nadu)

The Jennu Habba – Honey Festival and exhibition drew about 400 visitors. The Vidyodaya schoolchildren enjoyed intensive sessions with the elders of Kattunayakan tribe:

It is the honey season and bee hives in the forest are bursting with sweetness. Over generations our people, the Kattunayakans have mastered the skills required to take honey from the hives. With a rich history of song, dance and ritual, honey gathering is crucial to our very identity. We would like to share with our children the thrill and joy of our traditions.
