EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures a gathering of Native Chiefs from the hill country of Kandy, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), in the late 1890s. The image offers a rare glimpse into the rich cultural heritage and traditional attire of the Kandyan people during the British colonial era. The Native Chiefs, dressed in their distinctive and colorful costumes, are depicted in a respectful and dignified manner, reflecting their historical significance and importance within their community. The men wear traditional Kandyan headdresses, made of peacock feathers and other natural materials, while the women don elegant saris and intricate jewelry. The racial and ethnic diversity of the group is evident, with various types of Native Chiefs represented, each with their unique customs and traditions. The photograph serves as a testament to the complex and multifaceted history of Sri Lanka, where different ethnic groups have coexisted for centuries. Despite the backdrop of colonial rule, this image showcases the resilience and pride of the Kandyan people, who continued to preserve their traditions and cultural identity in the face of external influences. The photograph is a powerful reminder of the importance of preserving and celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Sri Lanka and its diverse population.
